Early-Mid August Figs Ripening

5 different fig varieties usually ripen a few first main crop figs by or about mid-August in pots in this growing zone: Improved Celeste, Ronde de Bordeaux, Mt Etna, LSU Purple, Florea, photoed below.

In-ground figs (almost all Mt Etna) are a month behind in usually beginning to ripen figs around September 1st. It can take 3 or 4 years for a heavily mulched in-ground Mt Etna fig bush to become especially productive in this growing zone, WV 6b, photos bottom.
