Non Producrive Fig Trees
I have the following fig trees which are two years old: 1. Celeste, 2. Italian, and 3. Black Mission, of which only the Italian fig has very few figs. The other two do not have any fruit. All produced fruit last year. The only difference is that all were infested with the Kudzu Beetle (Megacopta cribraria) this year. While the beetles do not appear to have harmed the trees per se, the area where they were located has a black film-like substance on the branches. No leaves were eaten and the trees appear normal. I haven't done anything different this year; watering, fertilizing, etc. Anyone have any ideas why my trees are not producing? Thanks.
