  • Video I made about 'pinching'

    I hope this video helps new fig growers understand what it means when we talk about 'pinching'. As I state in the video, I'm not an expert, but simply sharing what has worked for me. Thanks
    I demonstrate and explain how and why pinching is done on fig trees. I am a forum member of: figs4fun.com (figgyfrank) and ourfigs.com (F. Bennett)

                      Very professionally done, Frank. You may have a future in broadcasting if the fig thing fades.

                        Frank. Tis fig my Zio bring me 3 year ago from Italia. He say is white fig but has not fruited since I recieve it. So as you see in photo is fairly large. Should I be pinch every branch tip to force fruiting?

                          It looks well branched from here, but yes, I would pinch a few of the longer branches. You can always prune the dormant wood in the winter to reshape it. I hope it fruits for you.

                                  Really well done, Frank. I try to contain my plant size, being as I winter them over in my glass porch. I can't let anything get out of control. You've shown me something new...you snap the growth off and I've been nipping it off with my nails. I can see where your method is more natural for the tree. Lesson heeded. Thanks.

                                    I have been pinching tips also for a few years, but I do it only once per plant per year.
                                    Nice video.

                                      Thanks for the video. Yesterday I pinched my old Texas White Everbearing which is 16 -20 feet in diameter and very tall. I pinched everything I could see or reach. Time will tell.
