Figs Dropping

Anonymous added on May 2, 2011 | Answered

Had small figs (1/4) in size that turned black and dropped. They have had abundant yields in the past. The tree does not show blight or other problems. It is growing close to a creek, so water should not be an issue. Any suggestions?

It may be a phosphorus issue or possibly calcium. Both of these are necessary to grow fruit and the tree will abort the fruit if these are lacking. Have the soil tested and add some phosphorus and calcium to the soil.
