Fig leaf
« on: September 20, 2020, 05:19:15 PM »


My fig tree's leaves are turning purple and curling, and I see these reddish brown spots on some leaves, does anyone know what is happening to my brown turkey fig?

My figs leaves also turn in different colors : slight purplish-brown and yellow in this season - fall. The change happens prior to them falling and ive observed this on the leaves that stay for a longer time into the fall season, the slight frosts that are not strong enough to kill them just make them change color .

The brown spots could be rust.  Collect and destroy any leaves that fall to the ground with this discoloration.

Well if there has been a day of frost at your house, you can be sure that this is what it is all about.

So did it freeze or not?
