In the present study, the relationships among the shoot, leaf and fruit growth of 4 Turkish fig (Ficus carica L.) cultivars (‘Sarılop’, ‘Bursa Siyahı’, ‘Beyaz Orak’ and ‘Bardakçı’) were investigated in a 10 year-old fig orchard in Antalya, Turkey. The parameters (young shoot length, leaf length, fruit diameter, fruit length etc.) were examined from the beginning of vegetation to harvest time. A positive correlation was found between shoot and leaf growth and fruit development. Shoot and leaf growth slowed down depending on cultivar as fruit maturation progressed.
