  • What happened here? strange thing fig

    Can anybody tell me what they think happened here? I have 2 figs on 2 different trees that look like this. I did get some fig wasp figs and spread them out around my fig trees, (1st time I ever tried this) Could this have something to do with it?

      Looks like it was way over pollinated and blew up.

      A huge wasp party that got out of hand. Lol

          I've occasionally seen that in one of my varieties. I assume it's a developmental malformation in which the ostiole fails to close, and some of the flowers that normally are inside end up outside. I don't think it has anything to do with pollination.

            I agree that it's a developmental deformity. I've seen that a couple of times and there are no fig wasps here.

          I suspect Ktrain is right. I’ve read here on the forum that the ideal is for 2 or 3 wasps to go in a fig and pollinate it. But some figs will get more than that. When that happens, the fig swells up too much, too fast. You’re seeing the results there.

              I hope your fig wasp figs came from an area where the Black Fig Fly is not present. If you haven't already, read the the PSA on BFF and the thread on Jumping Worms to see where the hot spots are so you'll know if you need to start looking for signs of infestation.
