    Who cares about 1st year figs. Let it get to a state where you can't pick them fast enough and you're drowning in them. All fruit trees need an investment period. I pinch all first year figs except two to confirm variety, not nevessarily to eat. 10 or 20 figs won't satisfy anything. It sucks to hear that, but a fig tree can only produce so fast. They need time (years) too. It's not worth chasing them. Wait on it and let them come to you, in a year or 2.

      Nothing is certain in life and since I already have the 2 figs why not try to save them from splitting? I see growers here posting a pic of their first fig after a 2 or 3 year wait ,and in my case I'm very passionate about this new hobby ,I try to learn and that's why I ask questions .So I do care.And in this case I want to know how long it takes for this particular variety to ripen in this region.

      Yes, you need to close the pot, just in case. But the whole plant does not have to be closed if the variety has a closed eye ostiole or it does not have a tendency to sour. Not all varieties of figs burst after heavy rain. Everyone swells strongly, but many have reserves to compensate for the internal pressure.

        Move it into the garage, porch, or inside?

        I’d be worried about covering the fruit with a bag.

          The bag is not in contact with the fruits just covering them.

          The other branch has chicken wire protecting the fruit so the bag is not touching the fruit!
