The Black Mission Fig Tree is a very special fig, with large, jet-black fruit, filled with strawberry-colored flesh with a sweet, rich flavor. The large fruits are renowned for their powerful aroma and flavor, and they are one of the very best varieties you can grow. This plant grows into a large tree, with beautiful large leaves, divided into five lobes. It produces two crops of figs a year, one in late spring or early summer, and the other in late summer or early fall. You will be harvesting figs for weeks and weeks and enjoying the unique flavor that is only possible with tree-ripened fruit. Store-bought fruit must be picked before it is fully ripe, so fragile are the fully-ripened fruits, but those figs never ripen fully, so they always have a weak flavor. Only home-grown will deliver the full sweetness and flavor that makes this variety famous.

  • Superb very large jet-black fruit with pink flesh
  • Produces two crops a year from an early age
  • Easily grown in full sun in any well-drained soil
  • Recommended for Western regions
  • Best variety for areas with hot, dry summers

Grow the Black Mission Fig in full sun, allowing plenty of room for it to develop. Water regularly after planting, but once established the tree is very drought-resistant and needs no special care. This variety is self-pollinating, so you only need to plant one tree to enjoy bumper crops twice a year. It normally has no significant pests or diseases, and it is a very easy tree to grow. Within a few years you will be harvesting large crops of delicious fresh figs, to eat out of hand, or slice in salads. You can also easily dry part of your crop, to enjoy it all year round as dried figs.
