Can you tell me why this (?) fig has developed blacken, dead ends on nearly every stem of each limb on the plant even though it seems to be otherwise healthy?

I was told that the name of the fig is “Brown” something… Thank you, Bill


  1. Southern Garden Coach Flower Fanatic says:

    The “Brown” something is “Brown Turkey”, which produces a turkey-flavored fruit.(Not really) The black tips, I suspect, are due to winter temperatures dipping a little lower than figs prefer. They are somewhat tender, you know.
