      In past seasons my LSU Improved Celeste PP ripened figs ~ 70 days after they were rice sized embryos with average daily temperatures of ~ 60-65 Deg F. With warmer average daily temperatures they should ripen sooner.

      I pulled an airlayer off my 3-4 yr old IC last week, and the developing figs have that same long neck, stem that yours display. This is certainly one worth having in short season locales- it will really prove itself by ripening the fruit before my first frost, because it didn't see the sun before June!

          Really? A month ago? That's impressive. Was it the main crop or breba?

        I am pleased with mine, it is ripening continually for about 3 weeks now.

          Improved Celeste is like a fountain of figs. And the figs are sizable and potent, even as far as figs go. Sweet sweet. And the leaves are great. They can have a very healthy single-lobed Black Madeira look. The fruit even develops a wonderful bell-like shape as it ripens, though the color can sometimes leave something to be desired.
