Black Jack Fig is a dwarf deciduous fruiting tree prized for its heavy and long production of extra sweet edible fruits.  Its large lobed palmate foliage is a vibrant green. The clusters of tear-drop shaped sweet-smelling fruits are a rich purple with rosy pink flesh when ripe and is ready for harvest from mid summer into early fall.  Highly adaptable, but provides the best fruit in full sun and well-drained soils.  Black Jack is self-pollinating, drought tolerant, and has very low chill requirement of only 100 hours.  Can be easily kept to 6ft with annual pruning.
