Reminds me of Alex Harvey's The Boston Tea party Smile

Perhaps something to do with the line about mountain men Wink

PS: As for your question if the figs will rippen, I don't think so in the UK and in the open air like Holland park... It's a little too cold.
In Portugal where I was born they explained to me that all fig trees need to be given an "insert "of a particular row of wild figs in the tree bark so they will fruit better with the use of a very small insect that then occupies the tree and makes it produce sweet eddible fruit. If you have them in a orchand the insect jumps from one to another and does the job. If you have just one single fig tree it has to be introduced. It's called giving the "toque" to your tree rendering it with the ingredient to produce good figs. The other job is done by the sunshine... Grin
