Pick Delicious Figs From Your Own Tree!
Some people say that figs are an acquired taste. Those people are usually ones who have never tried a Black Mission Fig (Ficus carica 'Mission'). Once you taste a fresh Black Mission Fig from your own tree, you will wonder why you haven’t been growing these for years!
These fruit trees grow well in zones 7 – 10 and are as beautiful as they are prolific. Gently cascading branches crown the small tree and that gets as wide as it does tall. (30ft x 30ft.) It takes pruning well, though, and be kept successfully scaled to your garden size. It even does great in pots! (This means that if you don’t live in a warmer zone, you can still grow it – just bring it inside to a sunny room during the winter.)
Black Mission Fig tree care is easy. They generally give you two harvests a year – spring and fall – and don’t require a lot of fuss to keep them looking and performing their best.
