    Looks very nice.... Seems that the Wasp doubles the size of the practical fig universe for those members lucky enough to have it resident...

    I’ve been waiting several days for this fig to droop while it has been dripping from its eye into its organza bag. I should have picked it earlier. It’s over ripe, and the natural sugar has turned to alcohol and even soured a bit. Enough of the alcohol is left to give me a little morning buzz. This must have been one sweet sugar fig a day or two ago.
    The tree produced a number of little green figs in the spring, then they all fell off. We have the wasp here so fertilization wasn’t the issue. I was surprised to find one fig remaining and ripening, hiding under a leaf. Next year I’ll know to pick it earlier.
