How long to let a young tree grow fruit-less?
Just wondering how long (and if) everybody here picks the fruits off a young tree to make it grow larger. First year, second year, etc?
I know the conventional fruit tree wisdom is no fruit production for about the first two years, but figs seem to be an exception.
I have 4 little trees at the moment, varying sizes but I have only had all for less than 6 months. Even the littlest 1g is putting out figs but I have not let them stay on.
When do you decide that a tree is ready to produce fruit?
