I have one fig tree, that when planted a few years ago, had one fig on it. Since then, although it has luxurious leaves (and plenty of them), nary a sign of figs. It has plenty of light, although it is planted in a clay-type soil, and the drainage is not the best.
I live in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. My fig tree produces in the summer, then produces a large quantity of small sized, inedible green figs that fall onto the ground. They are inedible. I have not fertilized or watered the tree so wonder if it’s related to that.
Three years ago I planted two different types o fig trees in the same area. (within two feet of each other) One plant was from my brothers trees in Mississippi, type unknown. The other came from Wal Mart and was a dark Texas type. The one from my brother has produced figs for the last two years while the second has yet to produce any figs. My guess is that I need a second plant of the same kind to get figs on the second plant. Thanks for the info.
We moved into a mobile home in Feb 2009. There is a fig tree that we trimmed way back at that time. This summer it GREW a lot! It is regulation in this park that the trees cannot be highter than our mobile home. So we see no other alternative but to “top it”. The tree is just too big for the area. It had a lot of messy fruit. We don’t eat figs. What should we do?
