How old is your tree? For a small plant, it has a lot of leaves!

It’s about 4-5 years, I will take a pic in 2 mos it will be huge, but no fruit. I noticed my 1st year plumb tree has several plums, can’t wait for those!!!

If the fig tree is in a sunny spot, with enough vitamins and water, 4-5 yrs old would be a good age to make fruits.

Maybe it’s a he?

I used to have a running competition with my dad on fig count!

That’s very interesting about male and female fig trees. We’ve never had more than a smattering of fruit with this tree, and none have ever gotten to an edible state. I’m going to have to check to see if I can tell its sex.

She’s (or more likely “he”) is coming along nicely, as usual. Still no sign of figs though {{sigh#}.

Some excited birds gave ma a shout out about some of the earliest (breba?) Ones ripening.


…so I picked a few early.
