I planted a Black Jack Fig and Tiger Panache Fig 24 inches apart in late winter. I’m now wishing I had also included a Black Mission in the group. I’m considering adding one to that group now, but I’m a bit concerned by what I’m reading regarding how big BMF wants to get, and the advice saying not to prune BMF in the fall or risk loosing the breba crop. I think I’d be ok losing the breba crop, but I also don’t want to be battling with it to keep it from overtaking the other two, especially the Black Jack, which is a semi-dwarf, according to DaveWilson.com.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone that has experience with keeping a Black Mission fig small (under 8 feet), as per Backyard Orchard Culture. Is it working for you? Any advice?
