What could be better than walking into your own backyard and picking flavorful fresh figs? How about picking those delicious fruits from a cold hardy, easy to grow, a self-fertile tree that produces two crops per year. The Black Mission Fig Tree is exactly such a tree. Black Mission Figs are prized for their sweetness and smooth texture which combine to make them great for cooking, eating fresh, and even drying. Black Mission Fig Trees will withstand temperatures down to 10ºF so they are suggested for outdoor growing in USDA Zones 7 to 10.
The fast-growing Black Mission Fig Trees grow up to 30 feet tall, and 30 feet wide. You can keep them smaller by pruning, and they can be grown in pots. Black Mission Fig Trees are self-fertile so a single tree will make figs. Plant Black Mission Fig Trees in sunny spots with well-drained soil and the trees may grow delicious fruit within one year. Add a versatile, cold-tolerant, vigorous Black Mission Fig Tree to your edible garden and enjoy growing your own high-quality figs.
