Usually by age two, they will begin putting out fruit, though sometimes it may take a bit longer. It may be a nitrogen/phosphorus imbalance in the soil. Too much nitrogen and too little phosphorus can result in little to no blooming, which means no fruit. Also, if your soil is too acidic, you'll need to add some lime. Fig trees enjoy a soil pH of 6.0-6.5. This article should help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/fig-tree-is-producing-fruit.htm
