I just pruned some of my trees. I have the following varieties to share:

***********EDIT*********
THEY'RE ALL GONE. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THE RECIPIENTS.

Sal's G -early and productive
Sal's - a little less productive, but super sweet, and a fast grower
Conadria - large figs, very clean, not very impressed by this one yet.
Marylane Seedless - two crops, the second is late for me. Very tasty.
Verdone - large, late, ruby flesh, very sweet.
Atreano - large, delicious, not very productive yet, but well worth it.
White Triana - I have not tasted this variety yet.
JH Adriatic - delicious , a must have.
BT - I know, I know...hey, use them for practice.
Improved Celeste - dropped all its fruit two years in a row.
Black Mission - tasted one this year. A special variety.
Chicago Hardy - fast grower, small fruit, very sweet.
Peter's Honey - two crops, but I like the Breba much more.
St. Anthony - large brown fig. Pretty good.
Yellow Magnolia - hasn't ripened for me, but I can tell the fruit is massive!
Marseilles Black - very prolific, over 50 fruits ripened fully in its 2nd year. Another must-have in my climate.


These will go for a dollar a cutting, 4 cutting minimum to help break even on shipping.
Please PM me, PayPal preferred.
Most of these varieties came from Almost Eden, some are from trades.
If I'm ruining anybody's plan to sell any of these varieties here or on eBay, I apologize.

If anyone who I'm trading with this year is interested in any of these, please let me know.

Hi I am a beginner at fig propagating and these caught my attention your offer is really good compared to all the others on ebay and if I do buy some of these from you they will be my first fig cuttings ever. I would like to know how to buy them?

dag nabbit, missed out on White Triana.  Was too busy cleaning my pistols! :)

Those BT should be picked up by somebody because they make very good rootstock for Black Madeira! :D

Great offer, thanks for helping my cuttings collection grow!     This is my first year on the forum board, and folks' generosity with their cuttings is terrific.   

What's the opposite of 'dag nabbit?'

Rui,

Cuttings arrived today in a nice padded envelop. I feel like a kid in a candy store. Thank you very much. The amount of time and efforts you have put in packaging the cuttings shows your love of Figs.

Once again, thank you and thank you.

I'm glad they're starting to arrive, and they're in good shape.
I wish everyone good luck with your rooting season.
May you all taste at least one good sample from each of your new varieties next Summer.

Good morning:  Read your posting, it is very kind of you to offer so many fig cultivars.  Is each fig cultivar labeled ?  Do you still have some fig cuttings left?   Would you still have any of the following fig cultivars: Sal's Gene, Atreano, Marseilles Black, J.H. Adriatic ? If you should have any of these cultivars left, could I purchase three cuttings of Sal's Gene, and two each of Atreano, Marseilles, JH Adriatic  and Verdone ? 

How much do you need for shipping ?  Please kindly advise and confirm the cultivars you will be sending.  Is it possible for you to provide me an invoice and or name and email so I can make payment today via Pay Pal ?

These cutting cuttings once they are rooted and potted up in one gal. nursery pots, will be set out this next summer in a protected area of the local fig test garden for growing on and evalutation. Next fall these young plants will be repotted into 2gal. pots and sheltered in a cold frame. The next year they are repotted into 15-22 gal pots for enrollment in the main test garden.  The goal to find fig cultivars that will not only grow into trees, but produce usable fruit in our area with its many micro climates.

Thank you for your time, Mel

Travis, Gloria, Caitlin, and Ed:
Best of luck, I hope they all root easily, and produce fruits the first year.

Mel, I'm sorry, they're all gone.
Bob Cantor (rcantor) is giving away cuttings for postage right now.
I'm getting in on that deal, since I gave away all my Chicago Hardy cuttings, even my backups.

There'll be other chances, hang in there.
