Remove figs to promote larger fruit?? Some questions....
Thanks to members of this forum my two figs are alive and well. One of the figs (Colasanti Dark) was put in a larger pot at the end of 2010 season - not ideal but the roots were growing over the top of the container.
The Colasanti must have liked the larger container because now it has prolific fruit. Here is my question::
I have two sets of figs on this tree. 50% are about the size of golf balls and the other 50% are the size of macadamia nuts. The larger figs are on last year wood and smaller figs on new ''wood''. DH thinks I should remove all of the smaller figs to help the larger figs get even larger and ripen evenly. We are in Central Virginia and do not usually get our first frost until late October of even early November. Will those small figs on ''new wood'' get ripe or should I remove them?? This tree is in a 20 gallon tub.
Let me know what you think. If photos would help I can post them later today.
