I’ll leave the foxes out of this story since they seem to be the guardians of the fig trees.

As you know, I love fig trees when they produce their sweet bounty of figs, though occasionally I come into hardships along the way just so that I can have a good harvest by the Fall season. I’ve spent years growing my trees and I’d hate to lose a tree that I spent years growing to reach a fruitful age. There are challenges to growing them in the Northeastern US in USDA zone 7a. With these challenges, I like to share my fig tree survival techniques so that you too can have the success as I have.

Solutions to protecting leaves

solutions

Solutions are available for injured fig leaves. Fig trees in this area of the Northeast don’t have many pests. Once in a while, you’ll come across leaves being eaten or discolored. Sometimes you’ll find that nothing is eating the leaves or branches most probably because the sap (latex) is sticky and can be irritating (even to human skin). Other times, the problem might not be a pest, but a rust fungi infection. Read more

Fig Fact: Did you know that figs are not only fruit, but also flowers? How can this be?

Some of these trees are self-pollinating and others require a very tiny wasp. It enters through a little hole (the mouth) at the end of the fruit. Read more
