  • Is there any way to prevent figs from fermenting?

    Our weather is warm 100˚+ daytime, 90˚ night time. Lots of our yellow honey figs are fermenting on the tree. Is there any way to prevent this?

    Are you using shade cloth?

      RosyPosy, "Are you using shade cloth?"

      No, we aren't using shade cloth. This is an in-ground fig that I didn't prune in 2020 when I came down with Valley Fever. It's probably 25 feet tall and 30 feet wide. Next winter I need to shorten this tree to no taller than 8 feet.

    Invite me over to eat them before they ferment.

    On a serious note, like Rosy said....shade cloth may help...there is varying thicknesses for more or less shade.

    Wishing all of you a bountiful harvest!
