Why are my figs dry and tasteless?
Also know, why are my figs small and dry?
High temperatures and lack of water during summer months will certainly impact the tree, resulting in dry fig fruit on trees. Be sure to mulch heavily around the plant to retain water. These figs never ripen, and while they may not exactly be termed as drying on the tree, they are indeed inedible.
Additionally, what is the taste of figs? A tender, ripe fig is heavy with its own syrupy liqueur, which tends to drizzle out of its base if you wait too long to eat it. The taste is all honey-like sweetness with a subtle hint of berry and fresher shades of the flavor you might recognize from a certain cookie.
Also question is, what can you do with bland figs?
you could try mixing the bland figs with strong flavored fruits like rhubarb or strawberries, jam or sauce to eat. You could dry them and chop them and use them as you would raisins, just always adding at least one other more strongly flavored thing you like.
Why are my figs so small?
A fig is at its peak when the fruit is large, plump and juicy, so when a fig tree produces small figs, this is a problem. Fig trees have shallow root systems which are sensitive to stress. Overly hot, dry weather and lack of irrigation will definitely result in figs too small or even trigger fruit drop.
