        Nice. Mine are still hard and green, waiting patiently for a 1st taste, because I know BMkk ain't happening this year.

          Vitaly I might be picking my BM tomorrow. Looking forward to it. I picked another a few days ago because it was splitting but it was definitely early. Not sure if I will get anymore this year as the rest are looking real green and hard.

            Those are nice. Good job! I’ve been picking BM for two weeks already. My Figo Preto was rooted last.December and I’m amazed it’s bearing several nice size figs. Not so much luck with Creven Crevin. Lots of green figs, but I think I have to wait till next season.

            Have you tried applying olive oil to a fig eye? Try it. It definitely encourages ripening.

            I did apply some olive oil to a White Marseilles. I am not touching this one except to squeeze it several times a day and to final pick it.
