Description

Figo Roxo

Figo Roxo is a beautiful purple fig with an interior that ranges from ruby red to royal purple. It is a jewel of a fig, not only because of its beauty, but also because of its taste – a complex berry flavor suited for the fig connoisseur. For those with short growing seasons, it bears fruit relatively early.

Up for auction is a single large cutting and healthy cutting.

Some of the photos are my own, while others are used with permission. Feel free to read up about this fig.

I will combine shipping on purchases done on the same day. I will try and combine shipping for items purchased on different days, although sometimes I will ship quickly and may not notice purchases made on a different date. Buyer assumes all risk for growing otherwise healthy cuttings (as pictured). Of course, if there is an issue with the cuttings upon receipt, I am happy to address the situation per the figbid protocol or within reason. The cuttings are locally-sourced from well-known sources, and the growth pattern and fruit have been verified with prominent growers in the fig community.

Note: The mainline photo comes with permission from Fig Agro Lab Asia, and this is the original photograph as provided by the originator of this find (who also provided permission for use and distributed this fig to growers and collectors). I have heard there is some concern regarding the photograph colors, but for now that is the official photograph as provided by the source (and the only photograph I received permission to use). There are, of course, other purple-red figs from Portugal or Brazil with a similar named description). I think the photograph in question is the only one publicly shared of this cultivar /strain by a prominent and trusted fig grower at this time, and as such I consider it the standard until there are more pictures to compare 😔. I realize this isn't the best supporting evidence out there. Nevertheless, Figo Roxo has received rave reviews from trusted and reputable growers. I do have my own developing fruit photos which I will add later, but unfortunately my figs won't ripen properly this year 😕, and I'd hate for suboptimal first-year fruit to become the new official photograph.
