Q.When Should My Fig Trees Be Pruned? I Have One Very Mature Tree/bush That Grows Large Green Figs And A 3 Year Old LSU Fig Tree.

Last year, I surprisingly hit 2 harvests from my mature fig tree. One in spring and one in late summer. They are large, green and quite sweet. The younger fig tree had immature fruit on it. I hope it bears well this year. We pruned both of them as we saw a neighbor who has 2 fig trees had pruned his. Then we got snow so I’m hoping we didn’t ruin the fig trees.
