Brown Turkey no fruit

    5 responses

Paloma starts with ...
I bought this brown turkey tree 2 years ago or more from Bunnings, i have never seen fruit growing. What am I doing wrong? I also have a black genoa and this one gave me fruit from the first year.

I prunned two branches off the brown tucrkey a couple of months ago and you can see the new shoots in the centre.

Any ideas? I would love to get fruit

If you have done everything that you can like ample sunlight, water and fertilizer then all you can do is wait for it to mature a bit. What I did to my young fig trees was to feed them with sudden impact fertilizer. It's a mixture of chook manure and sulphate of potash to assist with fruit production. It hasn't failed me so far with my 2 year old fig trees namely; LSU Gold, dwarf brown, and Picone black. All of them potted as well.
Happy gardening 😎

My brown turkey , 5 years old , in the ground , no fruit , cuttings grow easy . So I have grown new plants , from cuttings , in 18 mths ,plant gave 1 fruit . Black Genoa fruited in pot first year ,and 2 times a year since . Figs like being rootbound to fruit well , thinking of stressing the plant cinturing may help get fruit . Black Genoa seems best for me in NNSW, some figs need specific climate maybe ? Wish I had grandads tree.

Hi Potty Bob

Some astute fig growers restrict the roots of the fig tree when planted in the ground by burying concrete pavers around the planting hole to make it root bound even if its planted in the ground and also to restrict its rampant growth and improve fruiting capabilities. It seems to work well to many old timers.
Happy gardening 😎

Fruity , yep , that's why my figs are all in pots now . I usually research first , however, missed this about figs . My grandad grew great figs , however I didn't learn enuff from him , grafting white mulberry to black rootstock to create the best white mulberry ever . He would of practiced root binding,and more .

Fig grows from cutting usually bear fruits in a year or two but a seedling fig will take 5 to 7 years. I think Bunnings sold a small pot at $9 is a seedling not from cutting. As Fruity said restrict roots grow will convert the stored energy to have more fruits instead of growth. But for seedling it still takes 5-7 years regardless. Cheers
