fig cuttings from spain

david126December 5, 2010

I have a USDA permit for importing fig cuttings from Spain. I am seeking nurseries, growers, hobbyists, etc. in Spain who would be willing to send me dormant cuttings. I will of course pay a reasonable price for the cuttings plus shipping, handling, phytosanitary cerifcate & any other administrative costs. I realize that some varieties of Spanish origin may already be available in North America. Nonetheless, I have the permit and am interested in sourcing different varieties from Spain. Assuming I have success with propagation, I would be willing to share cuttings after the post-entry quarantine period has passed (2 growing seasons). Thank you. David

off on Mallorca island, Spain
(where it rains in the plains)...

Here are two Spanish figs that Ray Given believes is worth trialing in the US:

Carabaseta: Clear green skin with light red pulp. Main crop. Very sweet and highly flavored. Dried, they have an especially good quality.

Roja: Reddish brown skin with amber pulp. Two crops. Both brebas and main crop are large and of very good quality. Main crop resists rain damage.

Good luck......
