Black Jack Fig

Ficus carica 'Blackjack'

A self-fruitful, semi-dwarf deciduous tree that produces exceptionally large, deep purple figs. Rich green foliage casts dense shade and stands out against smooth, gray bark. Intensely sweet fruit ripens for harvest during late summer to mid-fall, and must be harvested regularly to protect from birds. Easily kept small by pruning, this small tree makes a wonderful container specimen or patio tree.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
