Which type should I plant and how long should I expect to wait before it fruits?

Any one you fancy should be fine to plant but be prepared to wait about 2-3 years for your first fruit...also, you will have to net it if you expect to eat any fruit.

I didn't realise fruit fly got into figs. A friend picked one the other day and cut it open, and it had a decent-sized wriggly inside.
