Hey everyone, this time last year, I came here trying to decide which figs to plant on a slope we have on our property. So I decided on a black mission and a Janice seedless kadota. I bought 5 gallon trees and planted them. Had a bunchof leaves grow and a few figs on each last summer. One issue I had was that during the heat (100+), it was hard to keep the trees hydrated well and at one point I lost all the leaves. Fast forward to this season, we have had lots of rain in Riverside this year so far and weather has been mild. I am attaching pics to make sure I dont need to make the "bottom" of the trees any larger. And also how many times a week should I need to water these. When I water, the water pools the bottom for about 5-10 minutes before it is gone. Thanks in advance.
