Immature Negronne Figs Shriveling Up

ajwalsh172August 25, 2010

Hi. I planted a Negronne fig early in the spring, and up till now, it was doing fine. Today, I noticed that some of the immature fruit on it were a little shriveled. I think it's due to the heat; the fig's planted on the SW side of the house, and the temp has gotten up to ~114 degrees in the shade there today (and may rise further still). Plus, I noticed that mainly the figs on the branch closest to the wall were affected and had 2 dried leaves (not yellow, but green turning brown). Anyway, I watered it well and put down more mulch. My question is, will those slightly shriveled figs eventually fall off? Or could they rebound? I didn't see any dropped fruit. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Figs that shrivel yes will fall eventually unless they have ripened already.
Being near the wall yes the branches right there will get a little more jeat. In cold zones folks plant there fig trees facing South near a wall for added heat and protection against North winds in winter.
