I have a young (~3 year old) brown turkey fig. I planted it last fall and it survived! the winter. It is producing small figs now but the leaves have a brownish gray powdery looking substance on them. It doesn't rub off but looks like powdery spots. Any clue what it might be or what I should do? The leaves remain green and look healthy. This appeared after the recent heavy rains.

It sounds like your fig tree may have powdery mildew. This is a fungal disease that occurs when weather conditions are both wet and warm. Below I have included a link about powdery mildew that includes more information about prevention as well as treatment options and recommendations.
