Pruning chicago hardy fig tree

When can I start pruning my Chicago Hardy fig tree? When I put in the ground this year, it was a little twig. Now it’s about 6 feet and about an inch in diameter. I had two figs growing, not to maturity though, they were plucked. If I top it off or prune, would it affect the crop?

Thank you,
