Now that could explain why my fig tree is such a good producer. My soil is fairly dense clay and it was a lot of hard work for me to make my garden what it is today. It has only improved with my constantly adding composted material and other organic matter to it over the years.
Each year in June/July I have a bumper crop of figs and have a fight on my hands having to beat the birds in the morning before they pick holes in all the ripe figs. Then, there's the occasional late night raccoon raid that can clean out a tree in minutes.
