Will figs continue to ripen?

17 years ago

I'm never quite sure when to harvest my figs and I'm always tempted to pick them before they're completely ripe, in part because I'm afraid that if I leave them on the plants until they're dead ripe they'll either split or be attacked by birds and/or ants. If I do pick them, will they continue to ripen off the plant if I keep them at room temperature for the next day or two?
