I think it's safe to say many to most local figs died back nearly to the ground after last winter. But some did not. Not sure whether it was due to growing a type that was particularly hardy -- or maybe the location (siting). Maybe some of both.
Here's one (a Brunswick type?) in my area that did not appear to die back at all and there looks to be a good crop of fruit developing. Most likely this one got some winter shade -- and that probably helped some. I think the sun hitting the stems can kill them during the coldest part of the day.
