Description

This was a heirloom fig brought from Sicily to NYC many years ago. The mother tree died in the early 2000's and only a handful of trees exists from cuttings given to family and friends. My tree and the tree I got cuttings from survives and fruits every year in NJ 7A by being cut back and covered with wood chips.

It's a large fig, ripened for me in late august- September and had a very good berry flavor. Small eye. Don't believe I had any split this year.  If a wildfire was coming towards my orchard and I could only take a few cuttings- this would be one of them.

Shipped with UPS. Lower 48 states shipping only.

A phytosanitary certificate will be obtained if your state requires it. There will be a 2-3 day lead time once purchased for the New Jersey Department of Agriculture to inspect the shipment and issue the certificate. The plant will be shipped after the certificate is issued.

Plants were grown indoors under grow lights. Suggest acclimating them in partial shade for 1 week upon receiving.
