Figs considered the Fruit of Gods, this one is bigger, with a darker color and is very sweet, with great fresh flavor. Figs are an excellent source of fiber (more than any fruit) and lots of nutrients. Fruit ripens in summer.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
