What is the rate of growth of a common fig tree per year?



Can't tell you - all I can say is Ficus carica will be 15 feet by 15 feet after 10 years (left unpruned).

It depends partly on the variety, and partly on your climate, but most are considered underfed if they don't grow at least one foot a year. Here in the low desert, 'Black Mission', one of the more vigorous kinds, will grow 4 feet a year.
