Fig – No Fruit

Q: I gave my fig tree a major pruning two years ago. This is the second season that I had no ripe figs but plenty of green ones that never matured. Can I do anything to encourage ripe figs next year?

A: Severe pruning causes a fig bush to revert to a juvenile growth phase in which it doesn’t readily produce figs. Avoid pruning between now and next fall and you should have better results.
