  • Thinning out fruit?

    My Pete's Honey is making a lot of little figs on the tips of its branches. Should I thin the figs out like I do with apricots and nectarines? It's an older tree in a fifteen gallon pot with a big root growing out the bottom. I don't know if it can ripen all the little figs emerging at the tips.

    I've removed dozens of figlets this year knowing they won't ripen. I'm letting the trees put that energy in growth and fruit that will ripen.

      We have a long season here in SoCal, so all the figs that can ripen probably will ripen. It's a mature, well trained tree with horizontal growth from a local nursery, so it doesn't need a lot of new growth. I just wonder if all the crowded little figs can possibly ripen.
