Greetings !!!

Up for sale are these rooted cuttings of Harry’s Crete.  It's a really nice and rare large green fig with a delicious rich berry flavored interior.  The story on this one is that a former elder in the church brought it from Crete with him when they moved here years ago. The huge mother tree is wrapped up and buried during the winter. He shared cuttings locally with a select few and then in turn shared with me. It is an unknown variety as are many figs brought over from the home country of immigrants. It has a strong berry flavor, light seed crunch, thin skin, and is medium to large in size.  It has a very intense flavor with a hint of lemon acid. It has that jammy syrup like texture that is sure to please and it's one of my favorite "Adriatic" type figs.

Join me here every Sunday evening from 8 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. for the ending of my auctions! 

You will receive 1 plant that is similar to one that's photographed.  This one is grown in a 3"x 8" Stuewe & Sons Tree-pot along with a professional growing mix.   These pots make shipping and growing cuttings a breeze and are easy to transplant.   It should have a very nice root system and should rebound from transplanting easily.  Once transplanted, I think it’s always a good idea to place the newly planted tree in a shadier location for a week just to make sure it can recover adequately in its new environment.   This is especially true when replanting in a southern location or when the temperatures are above 80.   The Heat and sun intensity can be quite different in Texas for example compared to Michigan.

Some notes on Shipping: 

I STRONGLY suggest using Route insurance: Click here to read about it!!!!.

My growing operation has been inspected by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.  I'm licensed to ship to ALL US states.  However, I will not ship to Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico simply due to the distance and cost associated with this.  In my opinion, sellers that ship plants with the comments "buyers are responsible for knowing their states laws on importing live plants." or "buyer assumes all responsibility for confiscated plants" do so irresponsibly.  Selling and receiving plants without a proper inspection should be avoided. 

I will ship Tuesday-Friday purchases on Saturday and Saturday-Monday purchases on Monday/Tuesday (in case of a holiday, this may change slightly).  The faster your invoice is paid, the faster I can get your plants out.   Please make sure your Figbid and Paypal shipping address is current and accurate.  Please be able to receive your plant after completion of the auction.   Holding plants becomes very confusing and time consuming for me.   I can do this if absolutely necessary, but I will need to add a $15 charge to the invoice for the extra care involved.  Combined shipping is available automatically upon invoice with multiple auctions being won or purchased through FigBid within the same week.  Figbid combines these automatically, so it's best to wait and pay after all of the auctions you're bidding on for that week are complete, otherwise you will be charged the full shipping charge with each invoice.  I usually prefer USPS, but boxes over 22" cost quite a bit more to ship.  I will also gladly use UPS if you desire, but I must know this as soon as the invoice is paid.  I reserve the right to use UPS if plants go over the 22" mark.   Please reach out to me beforehand if there is an issue with that.  Again, I STRONGLY suggest using Route insurance: Click here to read about it!!!!.

Thank you for your support and happy figging!!!!!

Return Policy
Please buy Route Insurance upon checkout. https://figbid.com/Help/#Insurance Dan Foster has a rock solid return policy. In the rare instance that you are not satisfied, please let me know immediately and I'll make it right with a refund or exchange. Please understand that I do my best to correct shipping delays and lost packages but those issues are out of our control.Shipping Live Plants is always a tricky endeavor. I strive to carefully pack and ship your plants with care but, they are live plants, and sometimes it gets hot! If you don't have a safe place out of direct sun and heat to receive your packages, please reconsider ordering from me until the weather is favorable or be willing to take on your share of the risk. If you have a plant that you received and it's not doing well, please carefully unpack and water it. Place in a cool shady spot and plant it up if possible. Figs are resilient! Many times figs will shed some leaves as a response to being in a box, but will form new leaves within a few weeks. If you're plant dies due to shipping stress, I will refund after 30 days or situationally. Please send me photos and work with me on a resolution. Please take pictures of packaging and plant if it arrives damaged, be prepared to present this packaging to your local post office as part of their claims process.When it comes to striped figs that do not fruit with stripes: If you get sporadic striping its best to prune the solid portion out of the way, which will encourage the striped wood to prevail. Rigato Del Salento and Paratjal Rimada are good examples of this. If you get all solid fruits, take a picture of the fruit as it's growing on the whole plant and send it to me. If the plant has reverted completely, I will make it right. I can send a replacement or offer a refund. I don't expect anyone to pay a high dollar amount for a striped fig only to have it fruit solid green. Not many others will offer this guarantee, but I understand the beauty of striped figs and also know that they can be finicky. I want you to be happy with what you receive from me.
