One Lattarolla cutting, free to good home.  About 5.5 inches long and 6 nodes.  I was doing some spring trimming today and couldn't bring myself to throw it away.  I know it isn't much, but hey what do you want for free?

I'll pay postage, let me know who wants it.  PM me please.

LE,

Strange I have photos on my laptop but didn't post or note how it tasted.  OK, posting photos now. : )  Note the very large eye.

I seem to remember that the taste was very good.  How do I remember?  Well, I think I only had 1 or 2 figs from this tree this year and I remember thinking (or wishing) I had more and couldn't wait for the 2014 growing season.

I started my cuttings March 4, 2013 and this tree was my absolute strongest grower by far.  I'm guessing the diameter is 2 inches or more.

Wow. That looks good. I have some Italian honey cuttings, which is listed as a synonym, that I'll start soon. I hope it's as good.

BLB gifted me a nice start of Lattarola (NOT Lattarula!) the other day. I'm still dancing with joy!
