Is it too late to repot my fig?
I purchased a "Celeste" fig a few days ago from a local nursery. It is about 4ft tall (2 or 3yr old plant) and has a bit of small green fruit on the tips of the branches yet no leaves. Our weather has been erratic with some freezing nights and highs around 50 the first half of the week then highs around 80 lows in the 50's the rest of the week. I want to keep this tree in a container for the next year or two so I was going to pot it up in a half whiskey barrel with 5:1:1 mix this weekend (its in a 5 gallon nursery container). Then I began to wonder if repotting it now would over stress the tree and ruin my hopes for fruit this year. Have I missed the window for this. Oh, and is it normal for it to have fruit on it this early? I didn't think this variety had a breba crop.
