Description

All my figs are container grown in Wisconsin.  You are bidding on dormant, unrooted cuttings of O'ROURKE.

HortScience describes O'Rourke:

‘O'Rourke’ fig (Ficus carica L.) was developed by the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station to provide a productive tree of good-quality fruit, which ripens during the traditional fig harvesting period. ‘O'Rourke’ is a common-type fig and the third cultivar released from the LAES fig breeding program that was initiated in the 1950s to develop cultivars for the gulf south region. ‘O'Rourke’ was evaluated in plantings at The Burden Center, Baton Rouge, LA and at the Citrus Research Station at Port Sulfur, LA. This selection was chosen for release because of superior fruiting characteristics.

*********************************

I’ve been growing and trialing figs in southwestern Wisconsin for 30 years. My focus was on container figs which will ripen in Wisconsin without a greenhouse, but now that I have an unheated hoophouse & I’ve been putting many varieties in the ground.

I run a Facebook group called NORTHERN FIG GROWERS which has 13K+ members.  I also sell cuttings of currants, grapes, elderberries, willows, kiwis and scionwood of pears and mulberries.

*********************************

I do combine shipping.  Put your items in a shopping cart and request a total.  Do not pay until I have adjusted the invoice.
