    I'm right there with you. Of course i only pulled off about a quarter of what you did but it still did not make me feel great doing it.

    Does anyone know of any recipes for unripened figs?

              Wow, that is an incredible amount of figs to miss out on. Hopefully you can swing some preserves out of them and use them to get you through the winter.

                Last night I removed all the remaining figs on my trees too and put them all in. Most of the remaining leaves came off readily with the tap of a finger to the leaf stems as well. I didn't really miss out on too many figs though, I think I started removing the tiny figs at the perfect time this summer. I wish I would have documented the date though

                  The problem was we got a very early frost temps went down to the 30's for a couple of days then shot back up to the 70's now we are into the mid 60's if we didn't get that early frost more would of ripened

                    allot of these were young trees I didn't expect to get any figs at all they started off in the Spring at 12" and shot up to 6 to 7 feet hopefully next year these will be great producers to name a few Italian 258, Col De Dame Blanc, Black Greek, NJ Red

                      It will always be this way. They can't all ripen It only hurts the first few years. We had similar weather but things like Hardy Chicago are still ripening good figs. Long d'Aout ripened a few good one, Bryant Dark did as well. The problem with most is that they mold before they ripen.
