For sale are two (2) cuttings from my Carr fig tree. The cuttings you will receive will be approximately 6-10 inches in length and will have no less than 3 nodes. I will cut them fresh prior to shipping.
The Carr fig tree is a tree that grows in the wilds of Northern California. It's named "Carr" because it came dangerously close to being burned in the Carr Fire of 2018 and narrowly escaped. It is unknown if the tree is a wild tree grown from seed or if someone planted it. I took a chance on some cuttings that I received from a confidant to test if it is a common fig, and it was! This fig is common and will set fruit without pollination, so anyone can grow this wonderful fig.
My initial impressions are that this is a fig similar to a "Black Mission Type," although it definitely is not Black Mission. It is, in my opinion, vastly superior to Black Mission. The figs are on the larger side, easily growing to be 50-60 grams or larger. The fig has a very tight, sometimes closed eye, so it is extremely resistant to pests and ants don't seem to have interest in this variety in my climate. But what really set this fig apart was its stellar performance in heavy rain. This was, easily, one of the best performers in my wet, rainy, humid summer climate. Despite nearly 90 inches of rain this past year, this fig performed as one of the best, which is unusual considering how large it is. It's unusual for a fig this large to perform so well in the rain and resist bursting and splitting.
In terms of flavor, I would consider this fig to have a mix of a light berry and melon/honey flavor. It is somewhere in between a honey and berry fig, which makes it fairly complex. The flavor is delicate and moderately sweet, so it is a fig that you can eat a lot of without it being too intense. Because of the incredible performance of this fig in my challenging climate, I will be planting it in ground this spring.
Very few people have this fig, and I'm happy to share it with the community.
