Black Mission Fig

Ficus carica 'Black Mission'

A large, fruiting deciduous tree that produces large, purplish-black figs. Highly adapted to California’s climate conditions, this tree is crowned with a spreading canopy of green foliage that casts dense shade and stands out against smooth, gray bark. Exceptionally sweet fruit ripens for harvest during late summer to late fall, and can be consumed fresh or dried. Harvest regularly to protect fruit yield from birds. Recommended 100 chill hours.

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.
