Black Mission fig tree

Asked July 16, 2017, 2:01 PM EDT

We have a 4 year old 15 foot tall Black Mission fig tree in our south garden that has never borne fruit. It is wonderfully health looking but no blossoms or figs. We live in Gresham so it is colder here than in Portland proper but it shows no sign of cold damage.

Thank you for your question about your fig tree. Here's a link to an article about fig trees that may explain why it's not fruiting. You indicated the age (still a pup), but checking out the water and nutrient level may provide more information. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
