  • Auction to benefit OurFigs "Kesariani"

    Ok I have been planning to do this anyway, when the airlayer was ready, but Frank FMD just got me off my butt. Up for auction benefits going to OurFig forum.

    Bidding starts now Auction to end Sunday 7/26/15 at 10:00 PM ET

    Kesariani I am thinking is the Fig I own that might generate the most Interest and Money for the forum. I believe when this fig gets better know it will become a hot fig. This is what I know about the fig. Cuttings obtained from Marius, who if I recall had not grown it himself yet at that time. When obtained listed as pretty big size,purple/black fig,red flesh,berry flavor"...from the city of KESARIANI,near ATHENS,GREECE It was offered as a unknown, and there was a thread on F4F where it was labeled so I use that label.
    It's one of my favorite figs and to the point it is my avatar pic. Reminds me a lot of Takoma Violet. Very vigorous grower, productive and precocious. I believe it's the only fig I have had produce on a 1st year cutting. I know several of you get figs on 1st year but I don't normally seem to push the growth many of you manage. I don't know about hardiness yet as mine was just planted out this year, but as vigorous as it is I expect it to do well. Think as folks discover this fig it will impress. To my Knowledge it has never even hit Ebay. The airlayer not ready quite yet, but is started.
    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 4 photos.

    $50

    And I can be patient till the air layer is done.

              Deeper pockets I'm sure will pick this one up. I have already exceeded my budget this week but thanks again Phil for the fun. My wife might increase my allowance but not holding my breath.

                          It just seems odd....I was talking to Herpshell about it last night. It would be like going to a poker tournament where one person had access to unlimited free chips. Just does not feel right.

                            If it makes any difference, I personally don't see anything wrong with you bidding on it.
                            You have no influence on the raffle and you would be moving money from your pocket to pay
                            the website bill. Go for it !!!

                              Wills,

                              If you are uncomfortable bidding on here I am sure we can work something out on another or cuttings or whatever. but like I replied when you ask about bidding I said Absolutely as my thinking was along what others expressed, but that's just my take.
