Fig Fruit Is Turning Brown at the Bottom and Shriveling


limetree added on June 10, 2015 | Answered

My fig fruit is turning brown at the bottom and shriveling from the bottom as it ripens. Is it lacking in some chemical? Fig seems to be ripening but turning brown from nearly the bottom, the inside is developing normally from above the brown bit but looks dryish below. The leaves have little pin prick size bits of yellow; older leaves have bits of brown both on top and underneath. I look forward to hearing your diagnosis. Thank you. PF R
