I had never had a fresh rip fig until last year and boy are they good. I instantly became a fig fan. We have a couple of types of the figs on the property: Alma, Celeste, and White Marseille. They are really easy to start from cuttings or from suckers pulled up in the spring from the base of the plant. Here are a few pictures of the figs so far this year.
Seeing all of these figs leafing out reminds me of a scripture in Matthew 24: 32-36.

 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
  33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
  34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
  35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
  36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
