The Q&A Archives: ficus carica

Question: I have a fig tree that fruited in summer. It is now November and it rebloomed, I have some small fruit on the tree. Should I pick the fruit on or leave it? Is there a problem with my fig tree?

Answer: It is not at all unusual for fig trees to try to set two crops of fruit in a single year. The second crop will not ripen in your gardening region and will actually die off on its own. There's nothing you need to do. When temperatures get cold the tree will go dormant and all leaves, flowers and fruit will drop off on their own.

Best wishes with your garden!
