Fig Tree Drops Immature Fruit
I have a 3 yr. old Jerusalem fig tree. For the past two years the tree fills out beautifully and has many figs. The figs drop off long before they are ripe. If I touch a fig very gently, it falls off the branch. I cannot find a reason. It gets southern sun, sits on a concrete patio, no disease. I have lost at least 30 figs in the past week. Can you give me any advice?
