Fig trees

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

Fig trees pro­duce two crops in Tas­ma­nia, the first in late De­cem­ber and Jan­uary. The sec­ond crop is far heav­ier and the figs can be so over­crowded they rarely de­velop to an ed­i­ble size. Thin­ning right now is es­sen­tial be­cause it al­lows the re­main­ing fruit to fully form while tem­per­a­tures are high. Pick off the small­est leav­ing just two hang­ing at each branch tip.
