Fig Colors while Ripening

Cluster of figs shows stages from small green, to larger yellow, and finally purple ripe color.

Fig Development (July 9, 2013)

This picture, taken July 9, 2013, illustrates the various stages of fig ripeness. The most ripe and sweet figs are the darkest purple, figs beginning to ripe are yellow-ish and new figs are small and green. 

Currently, the there are small green figs on the tree, unfortunately, the heat keeps them from ripening. I’m keeping the tree watered and hopefully the heat will break and we can get a few more ripe figs. 

Rain is in the forecast for the next two days, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
