Young tree bearing fruit
Hi All, I am new here and to the care and feeding of figs.
I planted a 3 foot Celeste about 3 months ago that I got locally that was very well potted with a substantial root system. I have tended to it with a little fertilizer, water and lots of TLC to give it a good start. But the tree has grown very little, not surprisingly in just a short time after transplanting, but it is beginning to fruit PROFUSELY. What do I do? Should I let it fruit or remove the little figs? At this point, I want a strong tree and production is not important. I'm afraid that too much of the plants energy will go into the fruit instead of building a strong plant. Am I mistaken in this? All comments are appreciated. Thanks, (fig)newton101
