We bought a house & there is a fig growing here. Last year I could see no blooms & there was no fruit. This year, so far, I see neither again. My question is, do you need 2 figs to pollinate or does it depend on the variety? I have no idea what variety this one is.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thank you. A member on the Fl. forum just happened to mention her fig is fruiting & I asked her. She said they do not need another fig for pollination. Here's an interesting link she provided.

That is rather mind-blowing the wasp and pollination.

It all reminds me I must repot mine with its solitary fruit when I return from the deep north.

Many gardens have brown turkey figs and they are parthenocarpic, no pollinating necessary, they also bear sterile fruit

Thanks for that Judy. I had just started thinking about how I got my single fruit without a wasp.

Yes the wasp variety is interesting it not common in North America, I usually see brown turkey figs everywhere. Not an expert just LOVE figs and when I see a tree growing I check it out. Fresh fig halves served on plate with a chunk of goat cheese or sharp cheddar. Yum.
