Mark,

That is normal for a ripe fig. They will droop and come off easily when you lift them up at a 90 degree angle. The skin will tend to split as they become fully ripe, although they can split somewhat prematurely if you get a lot of rain after a prolonged dry spell.

  I put in a Cleleste Fig tree this spring and it has a good batch of figs on it.  Today I went out and saw pin points of seepage coming through the skin of the majority of fruits, some more and some less mature.  My first thought was that our unbroken string of heat indexes over one hundred degrees these past five days have made them sweat, much as I am doing right now.  I'm in northeastern Arkansas, near the bootheel of Missouri, and it has been extremely hot and extremely humid this past week.  I had one fruit, purplish, drop off in my hand when I tried to inspect it. It is very soft.  Is this normal for a ripe fig?  I am completely inexperienced with figs ( and most else!)  Do we have any fig growers out there?  (Thanks)
