Q.About The Fig Tree And Its Hard Figs

aliciaciarlo added on March 24, 2024 | Answered

Hi!!!! I have a 2-year-old fig tree. It is 1 meter high and is in a 45 cm diameter pot. In summer I watered it almost every day because it was very hot and when I planted it I used all fertilized and aerated soil. This January 2024 (I live in Argentina) it gave 5 very delicious figs weighing between 100 and 130 g… It was also filled with smaller figs but these DID NOT ripen, they are very hard. My question is: do I have to remove them from the plant or leave them until next summer? Please I await your comments Excuse my English because I speak Spanish

That is a very small container for the tree! The root ball will be about the size of the canopy, or top of the tree. Typically, a tree such as the fig will require lots of space to grow and lots of nutrients and water.

Another consideration is that it isn't old enough. They need to be about 4 years old to start producing, well.
