The Black Mission Fig is the single best all-around fig tree variety for the continental U.S. It performs well in the north and south, on both coasts, and in inland locations. Large lobed leaves and spreading growth habit make this a wonderful shade tree.

The Black Mission fig is a high quality fig variety. It produces both a breba (early crop) and main crop, and is considered an everbearing variety when planted in the right climate. The breba crop is large. The main crop is medium sized. It is a dark skinned fig with a strawberry colored interior. The skin of the fruit often cracks when it is ripe.
