    Should you cut fruit from fig tree the first year in ground? I mean newly formed fruit. I’ve read that you cut developing fruit from citrus trees the first 1-3 years. Same with figs?

    I wouldn’t. After all, if the tree is making them, not let them grow? I think for citrus it’s more related to young branches being brittle and they might break. Perhaps it’s only a question of how many fruits instead of all/none

    I would say the same thing – it can get all the nutrients it needs from the ground. Removing some fruits to favor the growth of a few with already significant size then pruning should do the job in this case.
