Young trees should be pruned during the dormant season only enough to train them in the desired shape, old trees seldom need pruning. Do not over prune

<![CDATA[Re: Fig trees in NJ]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/389/fig-trees-in-nj?commentid=1634 You can prune a fig tree in the fall prior to covering it or you can prune it in the spring.  Always take off any small suckers that grow from the ground and just place them in a pot.  They root very easily.  I hae a fig farm where I grow 100+ fig trees.  I only cover three of them and the remainder of the fig trees are in large plastic pots that I put in my barn during the winter, watering them only twice during the dormant season.

<![CDATA[Re: Fig trees in NJ]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/389/fig-trees-in-nj?commentid=1644 You may have a variety that is late in the season. You may want to consider a different variety. Check out fig.yuku.com. It's a chat board dedicated to figs. I'm sure they'll have some ideas.
