Hi. My name is Danny and I have fell in love with the hobby of growing and collecting figs about 6 years ago and even before that as a little boy picking figs off of my Papa's tree in Bayside Queens New York. I now live in Staten Island Zone B growing many different varieties that I want to share with you!

Up for sale is an I-258 rooted fig cutting off of my 3-year-old in ground tree. I am growing my I-258 in ground in my zone of 7B and also in 10 Gallon sized pot. All of my trees are professionally cleaned by being soaked in 1 part bleach to 10 parts water for 5 Minutes and stored in the fridge for 48 hours before rooting. They are all rooted in pro-mix Mycorrhizae all-purpose potting soil and are then fertilized weekly after trees are rooted and established. They are rooted under 12 hours a day of Led lights on top of heat mats. The tree you are bidding on has been shown the utmost love and care from the moment that it started its life to moment it reaches your hands!

Variety Information:

I-258, short for Italian 258, is an outstanding fig selected out of a number of varieties brought from Italy to the United States in the 1980’s. It is extremely vigorous, relatively early ripening and extremely hardy down to 0° F. An all-around proven winner in colder climates! The fruit is sweet, richly flavored, and juicy. The fruit is medium to large. The Color is purplish green with a deep red interior. An absolute juicy Flavor bomb with hints of citrus and tangerine! It bears in 1-2 years and produces a breba crop. You will not be disappointed with this one!

Possible synonyms: Genovese Nero

Original Source: Fruit Nut

ps. I have a few of the same variety listed on FigBid currently and have added three photos to each listing showing alternate angles and the number tree that is for sale. Please see other listings to choose which tree you would like. Each tree is vigorously growing in a 3x8 pot. 

-Thank You
