Advice For Tree With Small Figs

My fig trees are mature and have plenty of figs, but they are no bigger than a quarter for 1 1/2 months. Why?

I believe this has more to do with the type of fig tree that you have. I have this type also, and a friend who has a nursery said if I want large figs, I should plant a Turkey Fig. I plan to do so this Fall. My fig tree bears all summer, but they are very small figs.

Just browsing and found one of my posts from the past. I would like to update this answer. The figs were small on my young trees, but now they are 7 years old, and each year they produce larger figs. The size does depend on the type of fig tree, but mine are now about 3 times the size of the first crop. Mine produce figs from early summer until frost. I live in Hot Springs Arkansas.
