Description

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

Verte is a premier, light-skinned, citric berry fig that falls within the flavor profile commonly known as "Adriatic" (after the Adriatic fig proper, namesake of the group). Verte is highly productive of medium-sized fruits of excellent quality with brilliant green skin -- even when fully ripe -- that contrasts dramatically with the luminous ruby red color of the pulp. 

Due to the intense colors of its fruit and its appealing three-lobed leaves, Verte is frequently regarded as one of the most attractive figs. Its flavor is intensely fruity and sweet, highly reminiscent of raspberry jam, with a notable touch of citric tang. It tops the list of my personal favorites.

Verte is not the same cultivar as Strawberry Verte, although they are similar in overall appearance, as well as name. Likewise, Verte was thought for some time to be synonymous with Green Ischia, but Green Ischia (DFIC 52) and Verte (DFIC 26) have more recently been shown to be distinct varieties.

This naturally small tree is well-suited to confined spaces and container culture.

Verte 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.
