      Will the green tips die back causing multiple branching next spring? What to do if one wants a single trunk tree?

        Grow in a pot or move far, far south or west.

        Possibly, but all you need to get a single trunk tree is to Stake/Train/Prune a single bud in spring as the new main trunk.

      That's interesting Kelby, we should have had frost here weeks ago but haven't.

      The forecast keeps changing and it's staying very much unseasonably warm. The thermometer on my car read 51 at 6:30 this morning.

        It's a bit early here, but not out of the ordinary. Back into the 70's mid-week!

      It was 21*F this morning and all the exposed fig trees were exposed to a killing frost, but all the zone hardy trees and plants came through almost unaffected.

        Pete, will the 21 kill back all green growth? We also got 21F and I have a few in ground experiments that I didn't yet cover so I'm just curious if this one night will knock them back.

        Greg,
        No it did not kill all the green growth because it warmed up (above freezing) within a few hours. If not protected continuous low temperatures below freezing and direct frost will kill the green tips.

      Well I'm new to Figs so I didn't have any outside to die but all my other plants died. Peppers, poha/cape gooseberry, etc. My passion flowers are good, even potted ones. Some of my holy Basil and brahmi died but others didn't. Microclimates I guess cuz they were on opposite sides of the house.

        Condolences. I'm fast running out of figs that are likely to ripen but I did get the best Bryant Dark of the year last night
