The Fig Used By Home Cooks & Professional Chefs
Unique, super sweet flavor and incredible texture merge, setting the Black Mission Fig apart and making it the choice fig for cooking.
It's no wonder why it's so difficult to find at supermarkets. But now, you can grow your own…saving money and getting home-grown flavor that’s second to none.
Even better is the fact that the Black Mission couldn't be easier to grow. Unlike other varieties, the Black Mission Fig loves to produce fruit. You get two harvests each year: robust fruit in the early spring and fall.
You'll have to taste these figs to believe the deep, delectable flavor...it's frequently compared to crème brûlée since it’s so rich and sweet.
Best of all, harvesting home-grown Black Mission Figs is effortless because we’ve grown and nurtured your tree for months before shipping. You reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery, with a healthy root system, more developed branching, and the possibility of fruit in the first year.
You won’t find these trees at your local nursery or big box store. Grab the Black Mission Fig for yourself today!
Black Mission Fig Tree Pollination
Black Mission Fig Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Black Mission Fig Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Start by selecting an area with well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). Then, plant your Black Mission Fig in a hole twice as wide and nearly as deep as the root's ball, and water after planting.
If you plant in a container to bring inside during winter, select a pot that’s about twice the width of your plant’s shipped container. Also, ensure the pot has drainage holes. Use organic planting mix, place your tree in the pot, and then water until you see water flowing from the drainage holes. Finally, place your Fig Tree in front of a sunny window indoors.
2. Watering: Feel the soil about 2 or 3 inches down – if it’s dry, you should water the tree. Once your tree is established, you can water every week or every 2 weeks in milder weather.
3. 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 your desired size for the first three years. Established trees should not require very much pruning at all.
