What is the reason, and the remedy, for a mature large fig tree to suddenly stop the growth of its leaves which remain half size a

nd do not drop off? My large, mature fig tree, of native to area variety, in Mediterranean climate, had an unusually cold spell in winter and strong winds, both not unheard of in this area. It has always produced well, medium size green figs twice in the summer. This year it was again full of first crop of fruit, but the leaves have stopped growing and still remain half their usual size. Leaves did not not drop or yellow. The male pollinating tree is right next to it and it has been growing well with no changes in its appearance. Would you know the reason and the remedy, please. There was an unusually early hot two weeks as its fruit matured but the crop was plentiful. Sincerely, V Bonac. South West coast of Slovenia (close to Venice, Italy)
