Greetings !!!

I have rooted several Italian 258.  I decided the best way to get them into the hands of growers is to release them via the "Buy it Now" option.   I get messages all the time by folks saying they wish I would sell this way.   So, here's your chance for a no haggle, no bidding war option.   I've taken the average sale price of this fig over the last 3-4 months as the set price.    Italian 258 is a fig that is in a class all its own and is a must have. The fruit checks all the boxes for: Rich, Berry & Jam! The skin is chewy and sweet.  Yes, its very similar if not the same as Genovese Nero.   See the attached video.  Blind-folded I couldn't keep them straight.    I will ship the largest plants first.   Attached is a picture of what most of them look like.    I will not ship July 22-30th.   If you make a purchase then, I will ship on July 31st.   

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 can find me on Facebook and Ourfigs fig forum.  All of my figs should be assumed to have been exposed in some way to FMV Fig Mosaic Virus.  When young, figs will often show more severe symptoms, but most of the time many of them grow out of this as long as good growing and fertilizing practices are in place.

They are grown in a 3" x 8" 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 in its new environment.   This is especially true when replanting in a southern location or when the temperatures are above 80.   The Heat and sun intensity can be quite different in Texas for example compared to Michigan.

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.  However, I will only ship inside the continental U.S.   I usually ship using a box from 18x4x4 to a 24x4x4 box.  I prefer to use USPS Priority shipping.    I will ship out Saturday mornings.   Please make sure your shipping address is current and accurate and that you are ready to receive your plant.  Combined shipping is available automatically.    

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