What Should I Do With Small Fig Fruit

brianbooth1 added on October 22, 2012 | Answered

Our Fig tree has always provided good fruit over the past years, but this year I believe due to the weather the fruit has not ripened. We have a lot of small figs still on the tree. Should I remove them or leave them on the tree?

I would leave them. They may survive the winter and ripen in the spring. If they don't survive, the tree will simply shed them and no harm will be done.

Usually unripened figs are an indication of a possible problem related to stress. You should find out what that might be beforehand in order to alleviate future problems. Here is an article that you may find helpful:
