    Sorry for the self-promotion.
    Wills, feel free to delete if not appropriate. I've shared some plants and coordinates of the mother tree with a few of the forum members and was dying to test the eBay waters to see if there is any type of response to this cultivar, so I'm spreading the word.
    Perhaps I can donate a plant to the forum if all goes well.

        It is great to have new fig blood added to the fray. I've got my bid in.

        Here we go! And the winner is....?

          Thanks! I have 20-30 varieties I'll (hopefully) be rooting this winter, but this is on the lit for future addition.

                  Wow, looks like this auction is going to go big. Congrats, Frank!!

                  It's on my wishlist, but I think I'll wait until I have a fig in the same league worth trading.

                        If it were a plant, I'd say over $500. But it's not, so I'll say over $300.

                                    I'm glad the bid keeps going up Frank. Must be a great fig. I can't wait until some of my trees gets bigger. Hopefully we will all get a chance at this one..
