Black Mission Figs have a rich sweet flavor, and a smooth jam-like texture that makes them popular for cooking, eating fresh, drying, and preserving. The versatile Black Mission Fig Tree is cold-hardy down to 10 degrees F, and can be grown in the ground in USDA Zones 7 to 11. They are self-fertile, grow quickly, and produce heavy crops of excellent fruit twice a year.
Black Mission Fig Trees will reach a mature height of up to 30 feet tall, and 15 to 30 feet wide. They can be pruned to keep them smaller, and in proper conditions can produce fruit within their first year in the ground.
