I probably should have let them sit out on the counter for a day, because they tasted a little bit watery. I had watered all the trees on Sunday. The figs we picked in November (from the same tree) were much sweeter and tasted like they were filled with jam, but these were still very tasty. Boy #1 didn't complain one bit, and happily gobbled them up and asked for more.
Figs can produce two crops each year. The first is called the "breba" crop, is early and usually a smaller crop of inferior quality. It grows on wood that grew the previous year. The main crop comes later, and grows on this year's new growth. It is usually a much larger crop of higher quality fruit. My LSU Gold tree is already working on the second crop, and is full of green quarter-sized figs. If the birds don't eat too many, we should have a nice large crop of huge sweet figs late this summer.
