    Some figs can bear fruit on 1st year growth, which makes them suitable for colder climates. That's apparently what you have. I just started a couple of Chicago Hardy figs in big pots this year (they are also first year fruiters). I plan to either wrap the pot with blankets, or move them into the unheated greenhouse to keep the roots from completely freezing.

    @Lazy Gardener figs like being crowded in their pots, so don't be in a hurry to move yours to a bigger pot. Otherwise, they will spend all their energy filling the pot with roots before they start setting fruit, lol.
