The earliest a fig tree will usually produce is the second year. Normally figs produce fruit as early as the third year to as late as 6th year; depending on a myriad of environmental climate factors, ie - how warm is it; temperature during summer time, irrigation; fertilization; weather. Good fertilization is needed as the fig tree produces fruit on the new growth that grows the year before. In many causes, in Eugene there will be a crop and a half. The second crop barely ripening in early October.
