Fig Tree – Figs Are Not Ripening

Q: I have a young fig tree. Last year I got twenty-five delicious figs. This year none of the figs are ripening. I have over forty green figs of various sizes on the tree.

A: I really should patent a product called “Patience” that gardeners could apply to plants every week until desired results are obtained. If you think you are anxious about the figs ripening, think about your fig tree’s point of view. It wants nothing more than to reproduce itself via its ripe fruit! I think if you have a few more days of bright sunshine, the figs will ripen as they should.
