We live in Pa and are growing fig trees for a few years. Fruit came up last year. Now this May, we only see a little white pod, no leaves. Plant looks healthy but what should we look for or expect at this point? Wondering what it needs. Any suggestions?

Due to the cooler weather that many areas are experiencing, some plants like figs, have been delayed in sending out their leaves. As long as the branches are still alive, the tree should send out leaves soon. Unfortunately, the cool weather means that they may not produce fruit this year.
