Q.Why Won’t Black Mission Fig Plants Produce Fruit?

Zone 23702 | debscot58 added on October 15, 2011 | Answered

I purchased Black Mission fig plants almost 2 year ago. I planted them in pots, following instructions that came with plants. I have beautiful, strong leaves but absolutely no fruit on either plant. This year I transplanted one into ground to see if it would make any difference. I have pruned leaves, etc. but still no fruit. I live in the Tidewater, VA area.

It may be a nitrogen/phosphorus imbalance in the soil. Too much nitrogen and too little phosphorus can result in little to no blooming, which means no fruit. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/fig-tree-is-producing-fruit.htm
