        Have it also but no figs yet.
        Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

                That's a very nice picture. Can you comment on the productivity and flavor?

              I didn't get a chance to taste it. Hubby and kids took the picture and ate them before I got the chance. He said it's a keeper though. "Very sweet and tasty!" Got my tree from Bass almost two years ago.

                It's a honey fig, right?

                  Bass described it as molasses flavor, so I'm not sure if it's a honey or sugar fig. It's a relatively rare and expensive variety, so I'm trying to figure out if it's special or unique in someway that would make it worthwhile to get.

                I would say, It's a cross between honey and molasses flavor.
