Huge fig tree, variety unknown, adequate moisture--my problem is every year it will load up with figs but they will start falling off when they are about half to three quarters grown, usually losing 50 to 75 percent of the crop; and the birds peck the others, leaving me very few to pick. I live in south Georgia. Can you help me with my problem?
