Brown Turkey Fig Trees
Q.

Turkey figs

Zone Bristol, TN, zone 7 | abbias added on September 14, 2016 | Answered

Our fig (5 years old) produces lots of figs but only a few of them grow large and ripen, maybe 10 each year. It's very healthy looking, about 7 feet tall and as wide with lots of foliage. Is there anything I can do to get more figs to ripen?

    Young fig trees will often produce many fruit that do not ripen, so perhaps yours just needs a few more years. Excessively hot weather can also cause problems with ripening. These articles will help you:
