Fig tree fruit is small and hard

Anonymous added on August 21, 2015 | Answered

Fruit of fig trees in my garden are small and hard. They do not reach maturity. Margins of leaves are burned. Another sign, part of the fruit drying can be seen. Are the trees diseased or just not pollinated?

The tree may be stressed and if it is stressed, it will stop ripening its fruit. Try increasing water to the tree and that should help bring it out of its stressed state. This article should also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/figs-not-getting-ripe.htm
