Can anyone help this person? (I would ask him to post it himself to 
Nafex but I don't know how to tell him to access our group) Thanks!

I have a brown turkey fig tree which is 5 years old. I live in New 
Jersey which has a temperate climate. Every fall, I cover the tree 
with burlap and fill the interior with leaves. When I uncover the 
tree in late May, the branches are dead and new branches begin to 
grow from the bottom. These get to be 5 0r 6' in height and two of 
them (out of five or six) sprout about a dozen figs. These grow to a 
decent size and then stop and never ripen. Then the winter arrives 
and I start all over again. Am I doing something wrong? Help!
