Don't worry about your climate. The Black Mission Fig tree likes California style weather, but don't worry if you don't call California home. If it gets cold where you live, you can plant the tree in a pot and bring it indoors during the freeze. Black Mission Fig trees grow great inside a pot or in your yard.

Shape the plant to fit your needs. The great thing about the Black Mission Fig's size is that it's adaptable to your needs. You can pot and prune the plant to keep it small, or you can plant it in your yard and watch it expand. You get to choose how this tree fits into your life.

The Black Mission Fig produces more fruit than any other fig tree. You'll get tons of sweet, soft fruit each year with your tree. Being one of the most abundant fig trees around, the Black Mission Fig will give you more fruit than you can imagine.

Give the gift of warm sweetness. Your friends, family and neighbors will love the gift of the fig.

The taste has been compared to crème brulee and figs can even been (be) used as a sugar substitute because of their undeniable sweetness.

Dry your figs and get even more from your tree. Nothing compares to the incredibly soft texture and sweetness of a fresh fig, but dried figs can be just as delightful. By drying your figs, you'll vastly increase their shelf life and get to enjoy them through the entire year. Just imagine your family's delight when you serve figs, cranberries and honey at the next Thanksgiving.

They're good for you too. Figs are loaded with healthy fiber, which makes it a great diet food. You don't have to feel guilty about sweetening up your salads and adding interesting texture with your dried figs.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Black Mission Fig


Black Mission Fig Planting Diretions

Planting Instructions: Plant your Black Mission Fig tree in a hole twice as wide and nearly as deep as the root's ball. You'll need to place it in a sunny spot in your yard that is protected from winter winds. You can also plant your Black Mission Fig in a container and bring it inside when it gets cold. When you're done planting, add 2" of compost mulch extending out 4" from the base of the tree. Water immediately after planting and allow the water to soak all the way down to the base of the hole.

 

Watering: You'll need to frequently water your Black Mission Fig until it is established. Pull back the mulch and feel the soil. If it is dry, you should water the tree. Once your tree is established, you can water every week or every 2 weeks in milder weather.

 

Fertilization: There's no need to fertilize your fig tree if you plant it in your garden. Instead, renew the compost mulch every month between spring and fall.

 

Pruning: Prune back any dead or diseased branches after the second harvest in summer or fall. To maintain the size of your tree in your yard or pot, prune to the desired size for the first 3 years. You can prune to the desired shape, but do not overprune. If you overprune, you will need to whitewash the branches in summer to prevent sunburn. Established trees should not require very much pruning at all.

 

Harvesting: Use gloves when harvesting your figs as the tree produced a latex that is irritating to skin. Your Black Mission figs need to ripen on the tree. They will be ready to eat when they are easily plucked from the tree. Do not allow the fruit to rot on the tree, as this will encourage pests. Harvested fruit should be eaten immediately or refrigerated for no longer than 2 days. If you do not plan on eating your fresh fruit, you can dry it in the sun for 5 days or in a dehydrator for 12 hours. Dried figs will stay fresh for 6-8 months.
