Description

For auction 2 cuttings of most likely the best fig on the planet.I was extremely lucky enough to acquire my Smith fig tree from a Louisiana native.He goes back a ways enough to know relatives of the Benchel Family,Roy Young and many others in Louisiana.My tree that I was sent earlier this summer.Grew beautiful and set many figs.The terrible weather here made no difference to this rough and tumble beauty.This is actually my very first Smith.Boy was I missing out.I did get a few small cuttings in 2017 from NYcity figs (Danny).At the end of the 2017 Staten Island Fig Festive.Dan gave me a few small cuttings.The best cuttings were given to attendees.I did get 2 to take.They died in my garage over that cold winter.I thought I would never get another authentic Smith again.I just got lucky meeting these folks though fig buying and then swapping this year.I will find the photo of the Smith plant I was sent.I now know their is so much hype over this variety.Getting it from the source makes it that much more exciting.Its extremely hardy in every way and I will put this variety against anything out there.You will see some awesome photos.Your cuttings will be cut off my tree in my garage upon payment.They will ship first class mail unless priority is requested.

THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK
