If they succumb to gentle pressure, then yes, they're good to go.

Green or not, once they are soft, eat zem!

I like the not-so-ripe ones cut into quaters, stuff it in an oven dish, pour over it a mixture of

sugar
water
lemon juice
cinnamon (to taste)
rum
boil on stove coupla minutes.

Pour over figs, cover and let sit in oven at 400F for 15-20 min.

I prefer the Eden-variety leaves.

My neighbor's fig tree had figs this year for the first time.

I have never eaten a fig. I never see them in stores. I want to try one really bad.
