For sale is one well-rooted Marseilles Black fig plant in a 3"x 8" Stuewe & Sons treepot, grown in my own custom organic growing mix.

Marseilles Black is a dark, punch berry fig that is a member of the Mount Etna family of figs. Like other Mount Etna figs, Marseilles Black is early-ripening, cold-hardy, and highly productive of small-to-medium-sized dark purple fruits of excellent quality. The pulp inside the fruit is medium red in color, sweet and fruity, with prominent notes of berry, cherry, and grape. 

This plant is of the strain known as Marseilles Black (VS) or MBvs. Many growers consider Marseilles Black to be the most reliable and productive of all Mount Etna figs.

Marseilles Black is a common fig: it does not require caprification by the fig wasp in order to ripen excellent fruits.

I guarantee that this plant is healthy and true to name. The plant shown in the pictures is the plant that you will receive.

I will ship the plant to you by USPS Priority Mail within five days after you complete your purchase. Please note that I sell to buyers in the US only. Sorry, no international sales. Also, I do not ship to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or any of the various US territories and possessions.

Like most growers, I assume that any one of my plants may have been exposed at some point to fig mosaic virus (FMV). That said, I am less tolerant of FMV than many other growers. I regularly cull plants from my collection that show symptoms of infection with FMV, and I treat all new arrivals with recommended miticides in order to reduce the potential for mite-borne transmission of FMV to my established trees. I can tell you that this young plant has never shown symptoms of FMV infection, and I believe that it is virus-free, but I cannot guarantee this because FMV may be present in an individual asymptomatically.

Shipping to US addresses only, excluding California, Hawaii, Alaska, and territories and possessions. No international sales. Thank you for your understanding, and thank you for your interest.
