Tree shipped will be at least 8" in height and typically taller. These are vigorously growing in their first year of growth and figs are fast growers! This one is a little bigger than my listings at $13; that's the reason for the extra 2 bucks. :)
On shipping/combined shipping: If you pay more than what the actual shipping costs me I will provide a refund. This comes into play often on combined shipping. This site does not use weights for shipping so I have no choice but to charge a full shipping at a maximum rate per item. You will be refunded typically the same day after payment for shipping overages!
