Fig tree has fruit but no leaves

PamBSMF(9)March 27, 2012

We planted a black fig tree in the spring of 2011 and it did well last summer and produced a lot of fruit. To our surprise this spring, it has developed small figs all over the tree, but no leaves. Is this normal behavior? We live in Sacramento, CA.

have you ever had fruit Moosebeshack ? could be too much shade too much nitrogen or not a producing variety. give the tree another year then if no figs do like jesus did and curse it but with your chainsaw and shovel or move to a sunny spot in the yard and give it a year.and see what happens. I have a friend in huntersville who said his winter was extremely mild this year so winter dieback should have been limited and by now your main crop should be coming out so I don't think the cold weather had anything to do with it. please keep us updated
