Vicksburg, MS(Zone 8a)

I don't know what zone you are. Down here I prefer to plant mine out in the fall so they will have a better root system come next summer when they likely won't get much rain. I mulch them well to keep the roots warm. I don't have any black missions--mine are Celeste and brown turkey. They all started putting figs on when they were about 5 feet tall. If they put too many, I thinned them until the trees got bigger. If you plant it outside, it may put on a small crop for you next year.
