Survivalist Favorite: 2 Harvests Can Feed Your Family Through the Year

The Black Mission Fig is a highly valuable fruit. The sweet taste and incredible texture of the Black Mission Fig make it highly desirable. Rather than spend money buying figs from the supermarket, invest in your own Black Mission Fig tree.

It's easy to grow figs. Unlike a lot of other fruit trees that require lots of pruning, fertilizing and waiting, the Black Mission Fig loves to produce fruit. Without even trying, you'll be picking delicious, sweet figs from your tree in no time.

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.

Big gardens get visual interest with this tree. If you plant the Black Mission Fig outside, be prepared for more than just sweet treats. This tree's branches grow out and hang low to the ground. It will attractively stand out amongst your other fruit trees.

You get two harvests each year. Enjoy figs twice a year with the Black Mission Fig. Your tree will produce luscious fruit in the early spring and early fall.

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. Some people question the fig's dark outer appearance, but once they try it, they become fig fans. 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 enjoy them throughout the year.  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.

Black Mission Fig Trees are in high demand. It's so easy to produce delicious fruit from this tree and many people have caught on. Don't get left behind without a Black Mission Fig tree in your yard!


During the winter months, Fig plants can look very small and can be light on branching. This is a normal for all figs and is not a cause of concern. When Spring arrives and your plant wakes up you will see incredibly explosive growth. You will even get fruit your first year!




Black Mission Fig Pollination

Doing beautifully except for my overwatering
I love it! It came in great condition but I think I overwatered it and it got black spots on the leaves. Now waiting for the leaves to fall apart off so I can stash it in my garage for the winter

Not good results thus far
I planted mine in a whiskey barrel. So far not much growth. I've had something eating the leaves and a white fungus. :-(
Willing to give it a winter to see if I have new growth. Doubt I get fruit for a couple of years. No one told me I'd need another tree for pollination.

Response from Fast-Growing-Trees.com
Thank you for shopping with us! We're sorry to hear that your Black Mission Fig isn't doing well. You may treat the pests with an organic insecticide or Neem oil. As for pollination, your plant is self-fertile and does not need a second plant for fruit. If you ever have any questions regarding your fig tree, please don't ever hesitate to reach out to us. We're always happy to answer any questions.

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.

what does Chill Hours 100 mean?
Fabfabfab on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Chill hours is the number of hours between 32-45F during the dormant period, mostly between November and February. That the tree needs in order to produce fruit the following year.
It doesn't go below 10 degrees where I live. It only gets down to about 20. I will keep it in a pot. Is it better to leave the tree outdoors all year so it gets enough chill hours, or is it better to bring it in when it gets cold?
G B on Dec 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would keep it outdoors all year to get the sufficient amount of chill hours, provided that you live in the correct growing zones.
