Black Jack Fig History

Black Jack Fig

BLACK JACK FIG (Olney Strain)

Armstrong Nursery provided this fig.  The fig is purple with strawberry red, juicy, sweet flesh.  The tree is a natural dwarf, our orchard trees are a maximum of 6' tall with pruning.

The fruit is plentiful and sets 30 days before Black Mission and holds better on the tree.  Our fruit ripens late July through November.  Armstrong recommended all zones from coast to desert valleys in the southern United States.  I agree as the Black Jack does well close to the ocean and is one of our best producers with our San Joaquin Valley 110° F. heat.  The abundant figs are easy to pick from the compact tree.
