Texas Everbearing NOT bearing :)(

This is my Texas Everbearing, it is about 3 years old and over 6 feet tall....Not a fig on it !!! :>( I've seen on this forum that too much fertilizer could cause no fruit, It is right next to a Tomato plant that I put 13-13-13 on regularly, it gets plenty of water...and early in the year I would throw a hand full of the fertilizer around it too. Lots of new and FAST growth, but no figs :>(

it looks very healthy and good internodal spacing. The problem is probably overfertilizing. Good luck!

I wonder if you ever pinched after the sixth leaf,if not research ,pinching.
That will put your tree in production mood next year.

I did do some pinching... It branched out nicely, Hope I can keep it from freezing this winter we occasionally get mid teen temps. It is on the South side of my house, NE Alabama.
