FIGS 4 FUN
MORE INFO ABOUT HUMIDITY
Humidity and length of growing season are crucial factors in selecting a variety. Hot, dry, long seasons are always good, considering from where most of the figs originated: the hot, dry areas of Asia. More heat and more sunshine are always good for ripening figs (probably even in desert Arizona, but I do not have experience there). Shorter, colder seasons, such as the Pacific Northwest, limit the range of varieties that can be successful, and people living in such climes often place a premium on varieties that produce good breba crops.
Humidity affects some varieties more than others. Generally varieties with open eyes are greatly affected. Here in San Diego, not known for humidity, if we get a period of monsoonal type weather in late August or early September, it greatly affects varieties such as Vista Black Mission, Panache and Conadria.
