Strange acting Celeste
Below are pictures of my Celeste tree. This is the tree that I tried to get rid of a few years back by cutting all of its branches off almost to the main trunk. All that remained were nubs of branches 2 inches around. Because I couldn't get to finishing the job before it sprouted, I let it grow out. This year it gave me some great figs. It season is past and like all Celeste around the tree is starting to set itself up for winter. As you can see in the first 2 pictures the tree is losing it's leaves and planning to go dormant. But..... a branch on the other side of the tree is putting on figs and is still growing. Could cutting it back so much have reprogrammed the trees growth habits. It's got me puzzled. It's acting like two different trees.
