Brown Turkey Fig Trees

Fig Trees–No Fruit

Anonymous added on August 8, 2011 | Answered

Beautiful, healthy fig trees (Zone 7 SC) that are 3 years old, one LSU gold, one LSU purple, and one Brown Turkey from the Clemson Extension. They are mulched and have mushroom compost; however, have not bore fruit. About 7-8 feet tall and all real beauties! Any suggestions?

This past winter was an odd and cold one for many parts of the country. While they have reached about the age of maturity for producing, if you had a late cold snap, this would have killed the fruit while it was still small.

The other possibility is that the plants have too much nitrogen. Have their soil tested. Too much nitrogen or too little phosphorus will cause them not to grow fruit.
