Up for auction is this fully acclimated rooted cutting of Moscatel Preto.  It’s a large fig with a delicious flavor. One taste and you’ll know why it has Preto in its name.  It produced delicious brebas this last summer for me.  The main crop was also good.   I think the breba crop shines on this variety though.   Extend your season with this early fig!

My name is Dan Foster.   I’ve been growing figs since 2011 and it’s become a passion of mine that I hope you’ll find to be as rewarding as I have.   My goal when I began this obsession was to grow and taste as many varieties as I can to find the best tasting figs for my area.   This is still true today.   

You will receive the exact plant that is photographed.  They are grown in a 3"x8" Stuewe & Sons Tree-pot along with a professional growing mix.  They should have a very nice root system and should rebound from transplanting easily.  Once transplanted, I think it’s always a good idea to place the newly planted tree in a shadier location for a week just to make sure it can recover adequately to its new environment.   This is especially true when replanting in a southern location or when the temperatures are above 80.

My growing operation has been inspected by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and I’m licensed to ship to all 50 States. Included with this inspection is a Certificate of Quarantine Compliance in accordance with the U.S. Domestic Japanese Beetle Harmonization Plan.  I will only ship inside the continental U.S.   Send me a message if you have any questions.  I usually use a 24x4x4 or a 20x4x4 box and can combine shipping as follows up to 4 figs.   I use USPS Priority shipping.   I try to ship out ‪Monday morning‬, although sometimes I have to wait ‪until Tuesday‬.  I don’t usually see messages from PayPal after auctions are won asking me to wait to ship. The faster your invoice is paid, the faster I can get your plants out. Combined shipping is available with multiple auctions being won through FigBid within the same day.  Thursday auctions ship out Saturday morning at the latest.

Shipping to California is not an issue with me us because of the certifications and inspections I've acquired.  You may be taking a risk buying from other growers who have not taken these steps.

Combined shipping:

1 Fig:   $15.00

2 Figs: $20.00

3 Figs: $25.00

4 Figs: $30.00

Thank you for your support and happy figging!!!!!
