Update: This offer has ended. Thanks to everyone who seized the opportunity and I wish you all success. I'm here if you have any questions.




Inspired by svanessa’s post about the death of the Fico Preto mother tree, I’m going to just go ahead and make sure some of you have some good varieties.  

Violette de Bordeaux

Ronde de Bordeaux, you guys really showed out for RdB lol... Please knock all but one or two of the fruits off the first year's growth - they're not as good and when you have a larger tree full of higher quality fruits in 2017, you will thank yourself. If you leave just one fruit on, you'll be good to see how drastically quality can improve from year to year. 

Adriatic JH Same here about knocking fruit off. First year's fruits were nothing like what I got in year 2. 

 Conadria

Alma, one pack of three very slender cuttings

Emerald Strawberry / UCR 143-36

Hollier

(~20) Texas Blue Giant (recommended for drier climates)

Panache

Stella

Excel

 

So $2 per cutting plus shipping. I’m gonna recommend the USPS Priority Mail flat rate envelope for $6.45. It comes with a tracking number, $50 insurance, and will arrive within 1 - 4 days. The price is not affected by weight so you can pretty much order as many will fit in the envelope. We can also do first class envelopes for a quicker shipment. 

PM me if you’re interested.

I would’ve included less expensive varieties including CdDG and Smith but I already sold a few on ebay at $10 and $6 per cutting, respectively, and that would be unfair to previous customers. I often included doubles of the ones I listed above so the cost kind of evened out anyway. 

Hope this helps.

Edit: You can find some descriptions of some of those varieties here in this thread I did last summer: http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=7507337

Glad I can help some of you with your collections while keeping some stuff in the system. Also, I have to say I'm very happy to have room in my refrigerator again. 

To those of you who paid last night, again, expect a tracking number in a few hours. 

Please remember that this is first-come first-serve. I haven't had any real issues yet but just a heads up.

Whew, I'm happy to do this but this is a bigger job than I thought it'd be! I've got a newfound respect for those who do this every year.

Thanks to Bill (saxonfig) for the advice. Here's a link to his sale: http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox.com/post/cuttings-3-ea-shipping-7894489?pid=1290772796

I sent out most of the packages today. Check your PMs.
