Fig Tree

My potted figs are just beginning to come out of winter dormancy and have several leaves but also have several figs growing. Should I lop those early figs off or let them grow? The potted figs are going into their 3rd year.

It would be best, more than likely, to go ahead and pluck these off. This will divert nutrients for the vegetative growth to come back which will, in turn, produce better quality fruit.
