  • Whats wrong with these fig trees?

    I came home after 12 days away to find this issue on 3 of my trees -

    We have had a lot of rain, apparently it rained every day I was gone. Out of more than a dozen trees only these 3 are affected. One of them is also dropping figs.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    IMO, It looks as if the trees went dry for a short period (day or two) and the thin younger leaves dried up and experienced partial necrosis and sun scorch.

      When it rains a lot and the leaves are all wet and all of a sudden the sun breaks out again the rain drops on the leaves cause a loop effect and burn the leaves.
      I had this happen a couple of times last year and it looks quite similar to what you're experiencing.
