Q.Why all small figs on Brown Turkey Fig Tree?

Zone 7 ? | ktbostick added on September 29, 2013 | Answered

I live in Atlanta, GA and planted a small Brown Turkey Fig tree last year. It is now September 29 and the tree is about 1 year old, is very bushy, about 6 feet tall and has many figs. The problem is that they are all very small (1-1, 5 in. ) . They have been the same size for at least 1 month. Will they get any larger or, if not, why? At this point they are not even large enough to eat if they do ripen.

Figs traditionally wait until the last minute to start filling out and ripen. In zone 6b, we are lucky when there is an early spring and late frost so there can be a decent fig harvest.
