Fig Cuttings For Trade or Postage

I have lots of cuttings and will have more. If you would like them, let me know and I can send some, if you'll send back the postage plus the cost of the mailer. The mailers are about $1.50 and postage usually a couple of dollars. I don't want payment for the cuttings, just reimbursement for mailing.

I moved a fig tree today and pruned it heavily. I think it is Brunswick / Magnolia / Dalmatica / Madonna. It was a NOID cutting collected 10 years ago in Vancouver WA that looks most like the Brunswick type fig. The figs are large, tan color, pale cream color inside, very very sweet. Here in Maritime NW the brebas usually fall off. The Main crop is also fairly late, so I don't get a lot of figs. I'm moving the tree to a sunnier spot to see if it does better.

I will also have cuttings available for the following next month. They are listed with the name I obtained them as, first, then what I think are synonyms if there are any.

Petite negri. For me this is a slow growing small tree. It's easy for me to grow from cuttings. Sometimes I get fair breba crop but mostly main crop. I lose a few of the main crop due to rainy fall. The figs have a great "fig" flavor. Fairly small fig but great "figgy" flavor. Not as sweet as Brunswick.

Hardy Chicago. I get few or no breba, but it's the first of my main crop, and I usually get lots of figs. They have a great "fig" flavor. Fairly small fig but flavor is similar to that of dried figs, I like it a lot. Not as sweet as Brunswick.

King / Desert King. These are green outside, red inside. This is my best for breba crop. They are almost all breba, but unlike the web info I do get a few main crop. This is my most vigorous grower. Very sweet.

Lattarula / Lemon / Blanche / Italian Honey / White Marselles. Good here for both breba and main crop. Green fig, cream colored center, very sweet but less of the 'figginess'.

I am hoping to add a couple of new or novel varieties so if you have one that needs pruning and seems interesting, I might be interested. Not interested in Turkey fig, tried that and didn't like it.

The Brunswick are already cut. The others I plan to cut this month.

I've tried various ways of growing cuttings. Usually I stick them, half their length, into the soil of a planter that is being used for other plants, and just water as needed for the other plants. I get about 80% of my cuttings to root that way, which is plenty for me with minimal effort. The more involved methods are probably better and maybe faster.

The pictured figs are Hardy Chicago (left top), Brunswick (right top) and Petite negri (left bottom)

Those are some nice looking figs. I've had similar results by sticking cuttings into pots. I only leave an inch or so sticking out. I rooted a couple this year in the tubs where I had 2 tomato plants.

RE: Fig Cuttings For Trade or Postage

Thanks Wisner! You are doing exactly what I eften do - I have tubs of tomato plants and pepper plants, and those get the fig cuttings.

TO all who responded by email, I'll make a list so that when I prune the trees I can mail them to you!

RE: Fig Cuttings For Trade or Postage

I am very interested in some cuttings if you have any left ? I do not have any figs to trade yet as I am just getting interested in growing figs. I do have other plants if you like or I will gladly send you the postage.
Thank you for your time

Everyone who responded - I have the cuttings now and will be packaging them over the weekend. I'll go through the emails to make sure I have your addresses. I will email you when they are mailed. There were lots of responses - lots! - so If I miss you please feel free to remind me. I was a little overwhelmed but should be able to get them mailed next week, and happy to do so!

I will hold off on offering more until I get through all of the emails and cuttings. I have plenty supply of cuttings, but responding takes some time.

Have a happy holiday!

RE: Fig Cuttings For Trade or Postage

Here is the first bunch that went into the mail today. I'll be working on the rest this weekend. The day I can get to the Post Office is thursday, so that's when the next bunch will be mailed.

My apologies to those who are anticipating cuttings and havn't go them yet - still working on them.

Have a happy New Year!

Hi! I'm new to this forum and fig growing. I am trying to grow different things in my backyard.
If you have any left, I'm interested. I don't have anything to trade,but I'll definitely pay for postage.

RE: Fig Cuttings For Trade or Postage

Hi Fig Forum,
Still have a dozen packages to mail - tomorrow if I can get to the post office.
It's very rewarding to know I've shared plants with fellow gardeners.
Unfortunately that's all for this year!
I will email to each person after they are mailed, so you know to expect them.
Good luck to everyone! Glad there was so much interest!

Hi there! I would dearly love some fig cuttings to root if you still have any available? I'll happily send a mailer with postage if you do! I'm in Zone 7, not sure what figs are best for my area but I would love to try the Italian Honey if you have those available, heck, I'd love to try ANY! I had great luck last year rooting some cuttings I purchased off Ebay but we had a large tree fall and smash that pot (and our porch!) and I'm starting over again. Thanks in advance!

Hi Eukofios, I have three that might interest you and you have four that interest me. I have White Triana, Paradiso (plum sized and sweet) and an unidentified fig that is ball shaped, purple/brown skin/whitish-yellowish-brownish center., very sweet and a little smaller than a golf ball. After they go dormant in two or three months, I will take a few cuttings and would like to trade with you. Of yours, I would like the Desert King, Brunswick, Hardy Chicago and Italian Honey. Does this trade interest you? Thanks, Bud24

RE: Fig Cuttings For Trade or Postage

Hi Eukofios, I sent the following note about a year ago, but you must have been overloaded with requests. At this moment, I would like the get some cuttings for postage, because I have limited ability to trade cuttings right now. I will put you at the top of my cuttings list for future time. "I have three that might interest you and you have four that interest me.
