Q.Pollination for figs

Zone 9 | Cinall added on April 28, 2012 | Answered

I live in south Georgia. I was told that I needed to buy 2 fig trees in order for them to grow figs. I didn’t realize until I planted them that one is a Black Mission Fig and one is a Celeste Fig. Will these work together to give me figs?

The fig fruit is actually the flower of the tree with both the male and female parts. So no, you do not need two trees in order to get fruit.
