Fig Tree structure

Zone 9b | enem added on June 30, 2017 | Answered

Hi Folks, Can you take a look at my fig tree and tell me if the structure looks right ? The branches look weak to me and I'm afraid when they grow longer, they will not be strong enough to support the cantilevered weight of the growing end with the fruit and all. I pinched out the growing tips yesterday. Do I need to support the branches with stakes or should I let them develop strength gradually on their own ? Thoughts ? TIA!
