This specimen for sale is a young seedling African Rock Fig. One of the coolest fig tree species, native to north & central Africa, Ficus abutilifolia is closely related to Ficus carica, the common edible fig. Produces large thick beautiful round leaves, will grow indoors in bright light, or in sun exposed window. Research says its hardy to low 20's F. My plants have been exposed to below 30F suffering only loss of leaves. May survive planted outdoors in zone 9b but will need to be tested to confirm. Probably graft compatible with F. carica. The African Rock Fig has strong roots & will produce beautiful aerial roots under humid conditions.
Some of you may know me in Arizona, I've been collecting and raising rare Ficus species for about a decade, fruiting fig tree varieties, as well as other plants and trees. I've had multiple fantastic transactions on fig bid, it is a fantastic website to share ficus. I'm a member on ourfigs, generally as an observer so best to contact me on here.
