I have had zero luck with figs in So. Fla. I gave up and pulled them all.

Strange, they're one of the few fruits that pretty much grows like weeds in Southern California.

I'm sure this has to do with planting them in native soil which is inherently infested with RTK.  Grow them in pots off the ground with lots of organics.

Interesting - I'll remember that if ever I return to SoCal. Here is a picture of a wild fig growing on the side of a dry arroyo in Baja California. There are loads of them around.
