  • Which tree do I have? Fruit falls off and never ripens.

    Wondering if it's too much/little water or I have the one that never makes edible fruit?

    Can you show a pic of the fruit cut open? Is the tree mature? Sometimes young trees drop all fruit until they mature.

      If it's a mature tree and you've never seen main crop figs from it, and you live outside the fig wasp zone then it could be a smyrna type fig. Check out this video https://youtu.be/9EF28jftqXc

        I agree with Richard its most likely a smyrna type of fig.

          Tanquen Is that a hole in the fig? Did you cut it open to look for damage? Check out this thread. https://www.ourfigs.com/search?q=urg...gent+psa%22%7D

            I believe that is a Deformity, secondary eye.
            A few of my figs have it

            Agreed, I get that too on some varieties more than others.

            I'm in Napa, CA and the tree has been there many years and looks healthy to me and I'd hate to remove it but all the figs are kind of a mess and a waste.
            Did someone say pictures? How do you just do thumbnails?

              Yep. It is an inedible caprifig. The wasp lives in them, if you have it nearby. If you want to save the tree, you can top work it and graft it with some good varieties.

              It's such a pretty tree. You could plant some edible figs nearby and have your own pollination factory.

              I agree, that tree is so beautiful and well established. What I would do is graft a bunch of different varieties on different branches and keep the tree.
