Immature Fruit On Fig Tree - Knowledgebase Question

We live in Zone 7. We have a brown turkey fig tree that we bought last year from a local nursery. We planted it where it gets sun and added lots of compost to the soil. Last fall we overwintered the tree by putting stakes around the tree, sorrounding it with burlap and filling it with leaves. We did not fertilize it this spring. The tree had a fall crop, (no summer crop) but the figs were hard and green and did not ripen. What went wrong?

fertilizer like cottonseed, soybean or alfalfa meal.

For the best fruit production, water your figs regularly during the growing season unless rainfall is adequate. Take care that the soil is not constantly soggy. When fall arrives, stop watering and allow your plants to harden off.
