Figs on tree in November... Zone 5

Posted by igor_sqa 5 (My Page) on

I have a few trees with small figs still on the trees that I am putting away into the garage for the winter.
Question: should I remove the figs before putting the trees away? Figs are about the size of 25c...

Also I took one into my sunroom about 3 weeks ago with hopes that the figs on that one would ripen... Well, three weeks later they are still not getting any softer.
Any advice? Should I keep it indoors or put it away for the winter? Same qustion as above if I were to put it away... what do I do with the figs on the tree?

I do not believe anything good is going to come out if you leave the figs on the trees in Zone 5 inside the garage except most propably some mold on figs sooner or later. I always remove figs when storing plants for winter.

Thank you...
Any chance that the one in the sunroom will ripen?
Or should I put it away for the winter?
