The Black Jack Fig is a compact deciduous bush that can easily be kept to 6 feet tall and wide, with some simple pruning. Left unpruned it is still small, growing to no more than 12 or 15 feet tall. It has large lobed leaves that are very ornamental, and produces a heavy crop of fruit in August or September. In hot zones it can produce an early crop in June as well. Figs ripened on the bush are delicious, and totally different from dried figs, or even fresh figs from the store. Give your family delicious treats and enjoy figs at their best with this top-quality variety.

  • Heavy crops of large, purple-brown fruits with red flesh
  • Smaller bush that can be kept to 6 feet tall and wide
  • Attractive foliage makes it ornamental too
  • Excellent variety for growing in containers
  • Fast-growing and free of pests or diseases

Full sun is best if you want a good crop from your Black Jack Fig. Plant it in well-drained soil, without adding any organic materials – it enjoys rocky and gravel soils too. Water regularly until established, and after that only if you see leaves beginning to yellow in summer – it has good drought resistance. Pests and diseases are rare, and no special care is needed. Prune as you wish in early spring, to allow fruit to develop on the new branches.
