I know that oiling figs enhances ripening. I never did that. I am planning to oil my figs. From my reading the best time to start is mid-august. I have few questions to the ones who did it and knows:
1- What kind of oil like olive oil or vegetable oil.
2- Can I use a soft small brush. Some said he used cu-tip but to me it id too small and I will be oiling over 100 figs.
3- Should I do it every day or what are the intervals.
4- My understanding is not to oil wet figs only dry ones.
5- If you put oil into a little sprayer, can it work?
I am concerned about the time and the reach . Although I do not allow my trees to go over 6 feet but some fruits are hiding in leaves.
