UPDATE 8/1 We have been removing SOME of the dainty first leaves before shipping. Helps reduce stress. These are growing in a greenhouse and the leaves are fragile. . The new strong leaves are just starting to come in. These leaves will be hardy.
1 small starter plant in a 1” temporary pot.
“FIGNOMENAL” is a new patented variety of fig. The discoverer says it is a sport of Hardy Chicago. A sport is a branch that shows different characteristics then the others. Apparently this branch stayed very small but had a very large amount of figs. It also stayed very compact even after many years. The observation was then duplicated and the result is a compact grower that fruits heavily. The figs are similar to Hardy Chicago . Very sweet with a light berry flavor. I have planted a few to see how they do. I would imagine that this variety should be hardy down to zone 5. I would advise providing protection its first few years during winter. It is a common fig and does not require pollination. Keep inside if you are recording these in freezing areas. A sunny window is perfect.
You will receive 1 plants similar to the second photo. The trees range from 3 to 7 inches and ships in a 1 inch temporary pot. They should be potted into a larger pot after you receive them.
These plants are from a process called tissue culture. They are clean of any diseases and grow rapidly when fertilized properly. I like half strength miracle grow liquid every two weeks. You do this you will see it take off! I have been seeing pictures on the Fig Facebook groups if earlier in the year trees already producing!
We know things happen in transit. Shipping live plants is a challenge. We need to know within 24hrs of any shipping issues. Transplant shock does happen sometimes and is normal. That is when the tree shows up wilted. You can soak the little rootball and keep in shade. It will bounce back quickly.
ProFig is a licensed nursery located in Fresno Ca. We can ship nationwide. Last picture is of the discoverers mother tree.
