likewise I grow 12-13 varieties of figs, calmondin, persian lime, meyer's lemon,
loquat (champagne), passiflora spp., fejoia (hasnt flowered after 7 years), zapotec
guava.....   over the years Ive had a hell of a problem with scale on the citrus
because all the plants are wintered in south windows of several houses & after
trying many things to get rid of scale Ive found the simplest most organic
solution.  pressure sprayer & water blasts everything away  like dormant oil never
will.

bert, Im wondering if you've tried hardy chicago or everbearing figs grown out
doors...
