I have a 15 yr old fig tree and this year it developed a sucker tree at the base. The sucker is about 3’ tall. Should i leave it
or cut it off ?? The tree is producing a lot of figs so not sure if i should mess with it. Also, is it normal for them to have 2 separate harvests per yr ? About 2 months ago all the figs on it ripened and now there’s a lot of small green ones ripening now. Its never done this before - always just one harvest per yr. I live in Las Vegas, NV - not sure what zone that is. I never had a fig tree before so not sure what to do about the ‘sucker’ and the 2 different harvests. Any info from would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I would remove the sucker from the tree.
