    Yes partial shade. I have 36 in ground trees that get 4-6 hours of sun per day and do just fine. Probably not as productive as the 39 in full sun but that's ok.

    Now that's what I'm looking for...

    it looks like you've got the tree in partial shade?

    Emalyns Purple Breba 2015

    This is a three year old tree and my first fig from it. After losing my first few figs this year
    I tried this 32 oz cup split down the side and placed over the fig and branch. This was a
    suggestion from "driveway farmer" in an earlier thread. It did keep the birds from it but
    I knocked off the other breba that was not ripe when placing the cup on it. This is a
    very good fig for breba. It is a very sweet melon flavor with no seed crunch. If the main
    crop is this good or better it will be an excellent fig to keep. I gave it an 8 on a 1-10 scale.
