I have a black jack fig in a potted container. It is the first full year for her. I am new and live in Conn. so I need to know the best time to prune even now she has fruit on it. I have brought it inside to protect it. It stands about 7ft high. Please help. Thanks

Martin, It is best to prune your fig when it is dormant, so winter time. By pruning you will not get the first fruiting crop or breba fruit. But prune and leave about 3-4 nodes per branch. If desiring a single trunk, then prune out the new growth coming up at ground level. Hope that helps.
