The sweet, pear-shaped fruits with delectable red flesh make the Black Mission Fig tree highly desirable for fruit tree growers. Originating in Spain, the Black Mission produces sweet, purplish-black skinned fruits with strawberry-colored flesh that ripen into a rich flavor. The ficus carica mission fruit appears in early spring and ripens in a sunny spot. Loaded with flavor and vitamins, black figs are great for jellies and jams, and healthy, on-the-go snacking. Black fig trees produce fruit 2 times a year - one in late summer and a second in early fall. They may even produce a breba crop in the early spring. This self pollinating fruit tree is the package deal for fresh fig trees!.
