The cuttings will be renamed and you will see a straight line that crosses PBD when you receive them.
I recommend taking the time to decide on my listing before placing a bid, i offer NO refunds,returns or exchanges.
Also, I send cuttings in a padded envelope and are enclosed within a ziplock bag, and although deemed unnecessary, i take the time to saran wrap each paid cutting for added protection.
My name is Ben De Leon, a 3rd year fig grower from Las Vegas, I’ve been in love/entranced with figs since i tasted my first fresh one. The beauty of the fruit, inside and out, the unexpected experience it brings and the challenge of growing them fascinates me to this day.
My quest to find and try the tastiest and most unique figs have lead me to amass 60+ varieties, and i feel like im just getting started here in Southern Nevada.
Non Dormant Cuttings taken will be washed-sanitized then kept in a 36 deg F crisper until shipping. White residual marks are food grade Diatomaceous Earth i used for ants and sap beetles this year,i didnt realize DM sticks too well.

This is a side note for new fig hobbyists about my experience so far. Propagating figs requires some skill, lots of education,trial and experience. I recommend practicing with cheap cuttings first, this is not to discourage you from bidding on the item listed but there will be a percentage of success and failure for every rooting batch.
Mine was 1st year 75% 2nd year 25% then year 3, 33 out of 37 cuttings survived.
Notice the variation of success rate was drastic every year, this is because rooting a cutting to become a tree requires a lot of consistency the first 3 months. Getting the roots to come out is easy but the challenge comes from keeping it from being stressed. When young, figs like consistency, the combination of proper heat,sunlight exposure, environment and moisture control improves success rates. There are numerous great videos online on rooting which are very helpful. I have leaned towards grafting recently due to less “babying”. However, a 50% success rate in rooting and becoming a tree in my opinion is acceptable.
