Quinell is one of our family favorites. This tree we happened to stumble upon while driving in Northern California. The mother tree is a seedling that sits alone, growing through an old wooden fence at the end of a dirt drive turn-off on a dead end road. Interestingly, another seedling popped up this year, about a hundred feet away from this one. No one maintains the tree, yet it still produces very well.
This fig bears a tasty honey-nut flavor, which becomes more of a banana-nut when made in to a jam. Nothing extravagant here. Not too sweet; a slightly thicker skin, but not chewy; mild seed crunch if any. Just an all around solid fig.
With purchase you will receive 2 cuttings, each with three nodes or more and 7" or longer. Because this was a 2019 find, and for the sake of transparency, we cannot confirm whether it is common or not. Further, out of an abundance of integrity and caution (because no method is truly bulletproof when in fig wasp territory), we would not speculate that any California find is common without out of state confirmation, and we have sent cuttings out of California to be grown.
