Fig trees

Asked July 20, 2018, 5:40 PM EDT

I planted two fig tree seedlings 3 years ago and they are now over 4 feet high with very lush green leaves. But there is no fruit at all on both trees. What's the problem ? My neighbor's 5year fig tree has lots of fruit.

Clackamas County Oregon

Thank you for your question. Without knowing the variety of either your figs, nor those of your neighbor, I can give you only general information. I also don’t know what the conditions are for the two sets of trees. The most common reasons are a lack of adequate sun, and/or watering issues. Here is an Extension article with some tips: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/node/80621 Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
