Description

This highly prized fig was discovered growing In the Swiss/Italian border town of Ponte Tressa. Back in 2017 fig enthusiast nearly destroyed the mother tree harvesting cuttings. At that time one cutting was selling upwards to $1000. Thankfully the mother tree survived. The fig has a yellowish green skin and a pink to light amber flesh. Its flavor palette is one of a light sugar berry. A closed eye makes it impervious to bugs and rainy weather. It is a mid to late season fig. 

The first two photos is the actual tree being sold. This tree has been grown from a cutting started at the end of November. 

 

Bidding is open to the lower 48 states only. I do not ship to Hawaii, California or Alaska. NO international shipping. The trees are shipped in soil so know your states agricultural restrictions. More information on this variety can be found on the ourfigs forum or the figs4fun forum mobile website. I am DaveL on the forums 

 

*****I will do my best to protect the tree during shipping, however, I recommend someone to be home for delivery or arrange with your post office to have your package held for a pickup at the post office.  Please gradually introduce your tree to sun, wind or temperature changes. I deliver trees directly to my local PO to ship.****** 

 

In an effort to control the spread FMV by various mites, I have treated my trees with neem oil spray as a fungicide and with the spinoza Monterey Garden Spray as a miticide. Both are recommended for organic gardening. However as a precaution, I recommend that you isolate all new trees and plants from your collection for a short period of time to insure no issues. It is not unusual for fig trees to exhibit mild FMV. 

 

***** Buy more than one tree and save. For every two trees purchased from me, the second tree ships for free, any variety.  Do not make payment until I adjust the invoice.*****
