Answer: The usual reason for unripe figs dropping from the tree is lack of pollination. The pollination process is quite complex; it is done by a wasp. As long as your tree is otherwise healthy, you may simply have to wait for ripe figs until these little wasps discover your tree and visit it when the little green figs are just forming. Some fig trees will develop only 50 percent of the figs so don't be too disappointed if you have a large crop but not all develop fully. Don't fertilize your tree. It will only encourage lots of green growth at the expense of fruit. When you plant your tree in the ground, make sure it gets all day sunshine.
Best wishes with your fig tree!
