MORE INFO ABOUT BREBA FIGS
Breba figs in San Diego have never been worth eating, in my opinion. My theory is that breba figs "ripen" here in early summer when our weather is relatively cool and sometimes cloudy ("May Gray" and "June Gloom") along the coast. This limits the amount of sun and heat, which are essential to developing both flavor and sugars. Brebas crops in cooler climates ripen later in the summer, August and early September, when those locations are peaking in sun and heat towards the end of summer. Therefore the brebas ripen in ideal conditions. Their main crop often ripens too late, or not at all, when the weather has cooled significantly, and thus they have little flavor or sweetness (even if they "ripen") - the same problem my breba crop figs have.
