You will see the figs I got.In October 2023 that BOSSINA gave me on 10/25/23 and on 10/28/23.As her tree was nearing the end of the 2023 season.She told me on 10/25/23.That she picked 20 figs that morning.And has been picking bowls full throughout the 2023 season.As I looked at the tree on 10//25/23.It was still ripening many figs which I was amazed at.She said during the ripening time.Her fig has red thin skin.With a very red sweet red pulp.Its all fig she said.The figs you see in the photos are late October and November figs.The skin gets a little thicker.As the cold sets in but it keeps pushing figs.This is an extremely hardy EGYPTIAN VARIETY.AS THIS WOMAN TOLD ME ITS VERY PRODUCTIVE EVERY YEAR.This Egyptian variety is here to stay for me.I just might put one in the ground.Which I don’t do anymore.I say this unique variety is worth the northeast wrapping that I got away from.Although BOSSINA does not wrap her tree.I will grow more than one.It’s very smooth creamy and sweet.Boy did I luck out.I now have another fig Bud.NOW FROM ALEXANDRIA EGYPT.I assume all fig trees have or have been exposed to FMV.The plant you see is the plant you see is the plant you will receive.Your plant will ship priority mail.It will ship wrapped in a tall strong top loading box.
