Ponte Tresa is a berry fig that I think gets a bad rap because it was overhyped years ago. I grew it for the first time last year and was pleasantly surprised by the performance and taste. It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it... check out the photo of the fruit. Delicious!

You will receive the tree shown in the pictures. It is in a 4x4x9 treepot and has been grown under grow lights. It will need to be acclimated to the sun before being placed in direct sunlight. This tree is growing on its own roots. The fruit shown is from my tree.

I believe almost all fig trees have been in contact with Fig Mosaic Virus (FMV), though most show no symptoms. I assume all my trees have FMV. I spray regularly to control pests and minimize unnecessary spread. 

I will be shipping via United Parcel Service (UPS) due to regular delays in USPS. I will be shipping on Mondays to ensure delivery during the same week. UPS has been providing reliable delivery services. For customers purchasing more than one plant, a reduced shipping cost of $4.95 will be applied to the additional plants after paying the normal rate for the first plant. 

Payment is requested by noon on Sunday to facilitate shipping early in the week.

Fairfax Figs has been inspected and certified for nursery operations by the State of Virginia. I can ship plants to all states except for Alaska, Hawaii, and California. No international shipping.
