      venturabananas I picked up a Hollier and a Grantham’s Royal this month from them for $30 each + shipping. Their non preto / BM type stuff is very reasonable, and their trees are way bigger / healthier than anything you’ll get on figbid.

      For the maturity that is a good price. Their more common varieties start at 20. I routinely get figs and fruit that I can try the same year I order them.

      Look, I like that nursery and buy from them (not figs) at least a couple of times a year, but those particular varieties are not cheap. More power to them if you think those ones are good deals.

  • #3
    I’ve been buying some plants from Figbid for a lot more than $60-80 so you’re right. Still, i haven’t seen BM, Figo Preto nor Martinenca Rimada for sale at any of my local nurseries so I still think it’s a good price.

      I think it is a fair price range, though I personally wouldn’t pay it. I’d rather trade, and I’m fortunate to be in a position to do that. But the fact these trees are coming from an area outside the current zone of Black Fig Fly infestation is a plus!

      The trees you get from them are a lot larger & maturer than any trees offered on figBid usually, so it is actually a good deal in comparison.

    For reference, this was a $30 grantham’s royal I got from them last week. They sell good sized, healthy trees for sure.

      I bought some fig trees from OGW and recently received them. They all have blotchy leaves. Is that something to be concerned about? The fig trees that I have started from cuttings haven't had blotchy leaves like this.

        It’s a common issue with fig trees & they should grow out of it. Regular nourishment helps whether you use organic or chemical fertilizers & soil amendments.

        Hi PacNorWreck, that is very disappointing since I purchased from a nursery to avoid that. Thanks for letting me know.

        I’m no expert, but if you’re looking for trees that have actual reduced amounts of FMV, there is 1 option that I’m aware of: tissue culture, using heat treated tissue. For example, Raintree nursery sells TC plants that come from heat treated tissue.

        But there are also complaints here on the forum about some TC plants growing weird. You can use google to search the ourfigs site for those discussions.

        I have successfully ordered many items over the years from OGW. This past spring I ordered LSU Purple and received a very tiny plant which looked like a tissue culture. I called and complained and they offered to send me a replacement. I asked if any of the other figs were tissue culture and they said they were not. I selected a Tiger Panache as the replacement, and ….. yes it was tissue culture. After another call to the OGW… I suggested they confirm with their horticulturalist which were and which were not tissue culture. Received a call back confirming the Tiger Panache is also tissue culture and they were experimenting with offering tissue culture plants. I did finally receive a rooted cuttings replacement (Hollier).

          I will continue to order from them because I have had many successful orders, and they resolved the problem. However, if I do order a fig, I will be sure to confirm it is not tissue cultured. The eventual replacement I received was a well established plant.

          That LSU Purple looks like crap. If that is what they sent me, I would have requested a refund. Not what sure what they charge for this variety, but many standbys were going for $29.99 or so. That is not worth it. For a few dollars more, you can go somewhere else and get an actual rooted cutting. LSU Purple is a variety I have and I would be willing to give cuttings away for free rather than have somebody pay for this.

        I have been pleased with almost every one of the dozen or more plants I have bought from OGW over the years, but occasionally they send one that is subpar. That is ok by me.

          I haven't been extremely impressed by their trees, but their berries/bushes have been good.

          This was a jujube they sent this spring. Surprisingly it's still alive. I also ordered a persimmon that for the price was really small.

              Their waitlist function works well. They tend to restock figs in late summer / early fall. Depending on what you are looking for, they may have already restocked (Hollier) or may be yet to restock for the year (Tiger or Florea).

              Of the ones I mentioned as new varieties they’re carrying, they have lots of those in stock. But many of their other fig varieties have been sold out. Like PacNorWreck said, their waitlist function does work well if you’re looking at a sold out variety.

              Me too. I was surprised to see the negative experiences above. But, I suppose no place is perfect, I’ll be sad if they go the way of TC figs though 😕 But my experience has been good from my first order. I’ve received quite large plants 3+ feet tall, and very well rooted.

            I will update if I get a bad batch, I just ordered RDB and Preto from them.

              If anyone is interested, this is One Green World's response to my concern about signs of FMV on the figs I purchased from them. Apparently all, or almost all, of their figs have FMV and they feel that just about every fig in the US already has it.

              "Thank you for getting in touch and we apologize for the concern with FMV. We frequently see what looks like fig mosaic virus in the nursery and have found that nearly every fig tree, if not all, are carrying FMV. Often it does not show, especially with trees that are established, healthy and planted in ground but in container culture it inevitably shows up. We’ve tried sourcing “FMV free” fig wood and put them in tissue culture as it’s thought the fig’s tissues can outgrow the virus in a tissue culture setting and therefore be free of it but without fail it appears again if the figs are stressed at all, even in isolation from any other figs. We’ve talked to the USDA about it and recently had one of their employees out to our nursery and it’s generally accepted at this point that FMV is present in all figs and is benign enough to not warrant any action. It has been in California since at least the 1930's and most material in the states has come from there. While some cultivars that lack vigor such as Black Madeira and others often seem slightly stunted from it just after rooting we’ve found they quickly outgrow it, especially once planted in ground. Even the USDA’s collection at UC Davis has mosaic in every tree but as far as we can tell it does not affect the trees production or vigor. The figs are still able to grow healthy and produce fruit well.

              The other fig trees you have would already have the virus so there is not a concern for spread of the disease. Once you plant the new figs and they become well-adjusted to their new conditions, they typically stop showing the signs on the leaves of FMV. Because this information is widely accepted within the USDA and nursery industry, we have not posted it on our website. However, we appreciate your feedback and will look into adding this information to the website. "

                        Both these trees came with fmv. I’m not happy considering that all my trees at home are healthy and don’t carry this disease. This is part my fault buying stuff online, instead of purchasing in person. I don’t want my other trees to catch this virus, so I will be giving these trees to someone else. Or try to freeze them in the cold . Who knows?

                          I’m sorry to hear that! They look good to me, especially the Black Madeira. It’s really hard to avoid FMV, I don’t know of any collector that has been able to completely do so. But maybe if you’re not getting many fig trees & you can get all the varieties you want in person you can avoid it somewhat. I’m sure someone else will enjoy them. 👍🏼👍🏼

                          Just my opinion but think twice about discarding them. FMV is the norm and it's pretty hard to guarantee a plant won't have it. I had a few with obvious signs and all those trees grew out of it with care and fertilizer.

                        I love to ask a few questions. These trees I received from one green world have fmv. No doubt! I will send better photos to you because I do think that these cases are bad. Again I’ve never had this problem before. All my trees were family trees or trees from other families I knew. So being in the loop with fmv was slim to none. I decided to go outside the box and order some @@@@ online, so far I’m not impressed with the sellers out there between figbid,online nurseries, and even other sellers who had online shops. It’s like having sex in college without a condom! You don’t know what or who you get, until it shows up. Long story short. What are the chances this would spread to my other plants? How does it spread? Ex. Using uncleaned shears, contact, or airborne. Also If I decided to bring this to my family nursery until this dies off or grows out of it. Would this virus effect the other plants that are not figs? I received plants yesterday, do you think my other trees are infected? I’m not bashing onegreenworld. I’m trying to figure out the best solution not to infect my trees which I know for a fact that don’t have fmv and also other plants at huge nursery. Thanks for anyone willing to take the time to answer

                          I would suggest you do a thorough search for FMV info - there is tons here and elsewhere online, it is a well-known and researched.
                          Bottom line all known cultivars likely have it at some low level, since it carries from the mother plant if propagated from cutting, which is the source for most all fig plants. The exception is tissue culture plants.
                          Anyway if your plants are well-fed and cared for you will never know if they have it or not, yours very well could have it and you just haven't seen the symptoms.
                          It's always recommended to sterilize any cutting tools. Other spread mechanism is via the fig bud mite, which would not be in CT (unless imported in).

                          I do not fertilize any of my trees except for one tree that I using for a experiment for my YouTube channel. My trees that are not fertilized have dark green leaves. Just saying. Again all my trees are from family trees brought from Italy prior to 1930. So. Chances of them being infected are slim to none. Again dark healthy leaves without fertilizer.

                          Look at the health of my non fertilized fig tree. Doesn’t look like fmv to me. These leaves have been from day one. No fertilizer on these trees looking great and healthy

                            RosyPosy after extensive research and talking to a disease expert from our nursery. Basically these trees have aids. In the plant world! Simple terms. Other trees could be infected through insects going from one tree to the next. Using pruning shears that aren’t cleaned ect. Being next to each other wouldn’t transmit. Unfortunately I’m getting rid of these trees. I have too much at stake with my other trees the family trees. That I don’t want to ruin great system. But I will send some stuff to the ct ag. Station to get it tested. To find out exactly what it’s infected with. Blessings and thanks again

                            Forbiddenfruit.garden If comparing FMV to diseases, it's more correct to say the trees have "herpes" given that the symptoms can be completely suppressed with maturity and good care, but reappear whenever they are stressed.

                            ginamcd true! I wouldn’t want to live with either of them, So the hosts are indifferent locations(under my care) My trees are too healthy to even let them catch herpes of the tree. Blessings
