First time growing a fig tree..please help

9 years ago

Hi all,
I am a beginner gardener living in Baltimore. I bought a fig tree from Home Depot about 3 weeks ago. It looked healthy and had little figs. No idea what variety. Immediately transplanted it into the ground where it receives full day of sun. I have been watering it regularly and also pinching it. The figs have grown in size and now have a reddish tinge. The leaves also have a reddish tinge on the back that wasn't there before. I am also concerned about discoloration of the leaves.
Please help! I don't know what to do... And if any of you kind folks have thoughts about what variety of fig tree it is, I would greatly appreciate it.
