Growing Fig Trees

I have a 3 year old fig tree not producing figs. Last fall we cut it back and wrapped it. We unveiled it 2 weeks ago. Still no foliage. I live in NJ.

Figs need about 3-6 years to reach maturity and be able to fruit. You may just need to wait a little longer to get fruit. This article will help as well:

Your fig may also have died back some. If the branches are still pliable, the branch is still alive and will leaf out. If it is brittle, it is dean and will not. But even if the branches are dead, figs often regrow from the roots, so look for that as well.
