I planted two fig trees. They were in containers for a couple years. They are now beginning to fruit and someone told me I should remove the fruit to promote root and branch growth.
Is this true?
If they have been in containers for a couple of years you should have a very good root system. Possibly removing the first years figs may be necessary but I grow figs so I can eat them, not for the roots. You may have to thin out the embryos if there are more than the roots can support.
