Planting & Care

1. Planting: 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 you're good to go!

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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. Established trees should not require much pruning, however.

5. Harvesting: Use gloves when harvesting your figs. Your Black Mission figs need to ripen on the tree. They will be ready to eat when they are easily plucked from the tree.
