          Figs grow in my 117 F AZ Summer heat with western exposure (worst kind) with reflected sunlight off a block wall. I find they really stand up to the heat. In my yard, I would rate only pomegranates higher in heat tolerance. But figs and mangos are tied for a close second.

              You should try to maintain 100F or lower. Anything higher isn't going to help the plant. They can survive 125 but neither you nor your figs want to be at that temp for long.

                I have a small greenhouse with a vent fan and a heater. It’s no problem to maintain any reasonable temperature in the fall and winter. I have fifty green figs on my black Madeira that I want to ripen. What band of temps do you recommend as ideal?

                90/60 would be good. Try not to go over 100.

              In general, warm season plants generally grow well around 80-85 and I think figs would do great at those temps as well. I'd probably shoot for 85 if it were me.

              Mediterranean annual temperature ranges are from 30F to 100F.

                  I am in the Chicago suburbs and have a small greenhouse that I have kept some reasonably happy figs in and am planning to build another that will likely be a bit toastier. Am curious if any of the greenhouse growers out there still contend that maintaining 80-85 degrees is optimal or that breakout in to higher temps is beneficial?
