Description

This is a truly beautiful fig.  Found high in the mountains somewhere on the border of Tehama and Trinity county, according to the ranch hands it has been on the property for as long as anyone remembers.  The reclaimed ranch was once part of the 80,000 acre Diamond Ranch which stretched all the way to Cottonwood, CA. Unfortunately, the ranch hands charged with maintaining this portion have been directed to clear the trees for the purpose of building a new fence.  We were fortunate that they were gracious and allowed us the opportunity to claim some cuttings before it may be gone. They also gave us information to track down the family that has owned the ranch for generations, as they no longer live in the area.  

The fig itself is intriguing; having what can be described as a bubbled stem, beautiful yellow skin when ripe, and a magenta colored eye.  Its just a one of a kind find for this area of Northern California.

With purchase, you will receive 1 cutting with at least three nodes and 7" or longer.
