White Marseilles fig

token28001(zone7b NC)December 31, 2009

I'm looking for cuttings of this fig. I had some last year but lost them all to rot and mold. I've gotten a lot better using some of the methods I've read about here to root these cuttings. I don't have any named figs to trade, but I do have other things like rooted brugmansias, pineapple sage, cotoneaster, Miss Huff lantana, and plenty of seeds for perennials, annuals, and veggies. My rooted cuttings are of varying sizes which can be discussed based on your wants. As a last resort, I would send postage for some cuttings if anyone has some. I prefer to trade, just because I like to be fair.

My current fig is most likely brown turkey. I've got cuttings from a purported Black Mission to root this winter.

Here's the unknown (Brown Turkey) cutting I rooted this past spring. Photo taken in late October. No figs this year, I planted it out late and it didn't get going until August. But it did grow to over 5' tall in those few months.

Thanks. Please email me if you're interested in a trade or have this variety.

Token, I have a pretty good strain of Marseilles and will send out some cuttings no problem. Send me an e-mail.
