Dr Tapla, Would Pinching Leaves & Small Figs Help In Ripening
Hello Dr Tapla And Fig Friends,
I am intrigue as to whether by picking leaves & little figs off the main crop in Sept would in any way contribute some measure of success in helping the figs to ripen earlier. It seems logical that picking the leaves off to allow more sun light would help but last year my fig tree(even fully laden) never seem to benefit from it. Any comments most welcome. Goal is to have more ripe figs apart from using the greenhouse or oiling. Thanks.
