Description: Packed with nutrients, this jammy-sweet fruit tree is an easy-care option that has a lot to give. Black Mission fig trees fruit twice a year, and they tend start producing fruit at a younger age than other fig varieties. Whether is it included in a cooked meal, baked into a dessert, dried as a snack, or eaten fresh off the tree, this fig is sure to be sweet and delicious.
Figs can be grown in the ground or in a pot, but if you live in an area that experiences frost, make sure to bring it indoors, or protect it with some burlap. Figs prefer a long season of warm weather, and once established, they require less frequent watering.
