... We added two figs last year.
I dunno. We just really love fresh figs, and they are hard to find in the local stores. And if you do find them, they are often not ripe enough, and they cost ~$1/ ea. Over the last couple of years we have found two local garden plots where figs were flourishing, so we figured we would give them a shot ourselves.What is the deal with fig trees?
I have no idea on determining sex on our trees. I have read conflicting info on them having both sexes, getting pollinated from neighboring trees, etc. The two trees are definitely over twenty years old and they flower at least once or twice a year. Only one tree ever has an avocado and it's usually only one or two maximum. Would love o figure something out. We make avocado dip all summer with cilantro, hot peppers, etc.you need a male and a female tree to cross pollinate otherwise little to no fruit. Duh!
Sounds good. Thanks.just saying it takes two to make babies.lol i was just messing with you, but you do need to have both sexes and plenty of water, we used to use grass fertilizer as, the nutritional balance is close to what the need. My mother is a nursery woman i'll give her a call and find out what she says.
