Fig Tree

Single Stalk on Tree

Anonymous added on March 8, 2014 | Answered

Last April I planted dwarf fig tree, which has produced fruit 5-6 times. Has never grown another branch off main branch (Charlie Brown). There is 1 fig sitting on top of main branch and couple of shoots near the bottom. Do I cut the main stalk back/off?

Yes, you can nip off the tip of the main branch to encourage branching. You only need to remove an inch or so to encourage this.
