The Black Mission Fig tree is also referred to as the Franciscan Fig. The Black Mission fig is a large fig with purplish black skin, strawberry flesh that is the taste standard for figs. The Black Mission fig tree is the most productive variety, both of breba (early) crop, and heavy main (late) crop. Black Mission Figs are best for eating fresh out of hand or drying. The Franciscan friars brought the Black Mission fig tree to the California missions in the late 1700's.  Fig trees are 2-3 feet in height when shipped. Please see below for further information on our fruit trees for sale.
