|Fig Embryos on Sal's Fig. 6.22.14|
With the loss of apical dominance - suppressive hormones that are produced by the growth tip, and lost when the tip is snapped, off - growth of figs is stimulated.
If the current growth is any indication, there could be lots of Brunswick figs this year, and more Sal's than I expected.
The next challenge is mold and spoiling due to late fall rains. I've learned my lesson. I will cover the figs, maybe with zip lock bags, this fall. Or a plastic cover, held on by clothes pins.
I'm optimistic. It would be great to get a nice fig crop in Battleground.
