    I have two brown Turkey fig trees and am having difficulty finding information on the correct way to prune them for more fruit.
    Also what are the best fig cultivars for the west coast.? These ones seem to set out more fruit in the second fruiting and our season isn't long enough for these to come ripe.

    Bob Duncan of Fruit Trees and More on Vancouver Island posted a nice video for prunning figs in a cool climate. I'd also try Desert King, easy and delicious.

    Figs produce also without pruning....anyway they'll bear fruit also after pruning. When you prune remember that September fruits grow on new vegetazione, whereas the Summer fruits grow from old buds. Most cultivars mainly produce "September" fruits. Few, instead, produce mainly summer fruits...
