The tale of the fig tree – part 1(Luk. 13:6-8)

 He spoke this parable. “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it, and found none. He said to the vine dresser, ‘Behold, these three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and found none. Cut it down. Why does it waste the soil?’ He answered, ‘Lord, leave it alone this year also, until I dig around it, and fertilize it. If it bears fruit, fine; but if not, after that, you can cut it down.’”

— Luke 13:6-8(WEB)

How long before fig tree produce fruit? How many harvest  does it produce per year?

The answer to the first question comes from Billie Jo Amato of the California Fig Advisory Board, I received your message from one of our industry members and am responding to it.  A fig tree will start to produce in the second or third year, but will not reach full production until its 6-7th year.”

The answer to the second question from the California Rare Fruit Growers web site is two (2), one in the string and a second in the fall.
