I introduced my find last year in the fig forums. When I received my cuttings, I asked the person to write down the name of the cuttings, which I original ready "Canalheto" but later found the "n" to be an "r". So instead of CaNalheto", the name really is "CaRalheto". The tree was brought over from Portugal many years ago with the owner's other tree (Moscatel Branco).
The owner of the mother tree immigrated from Lisbon Portugal about 17 years ago and brought this tree with him. As you can see by the pictures, this tree grew very well here in zone 7. The full backstory is on OurFig.com:
I add this note to all my generational figs:
One thing amazing about figs brought over by generational immigrants to consider: the immigrants are leaving their mother land forever. They bring whatever they can schlep. Yet, they bring a fig tree which I believe must have such a unique and savory flavor to them they cannot buy here in the United States. Moreover, I would like to think it's their way of bringing some of their old home roots to their new start. I love collecting and sharing these family heirlooms as I believe there is nothing more authentic, and each one has their own story.
I do combine shipping if you win multiple bids IF you wait for an invoice BEFORE paying.
KNOW YOUR SELLER - There are a lot of people selling fig tree and tree cuttings that are NOT what they represent. Sadly, you will not know until a year or 2 later where you will have no recourse. Simple searches on the internet of usernames can prevent this.
I am Nunuorig on online fig discussion forums.
All my trees are treated with Neem Oil, Sevin, and/or Malathion to prevent the cause and/or spread of FMV. However, I assume all my plants have been exposed to Fig Mosaic Virus (FMV).
I will ship the following day payment is received.
I only ship USPS to confirmed addresses.
