  • ROB'S Genovese Nero. Two packs available for free.

    This is ROB'S Genovese Nero. Huge fig. I have a 2 year old tree in a 5 gallon SIP and it grew like a weed this year. Consistently put out figs all summer. I give it a final score of 7.5 after the 12 or so I ate this year. I've heard it will get better with age. The first two to request a pack in this thread will receive 4 cuttings, completely free. US address only. They will ship by the end of the week. Happy New Year!

              By any chance has any one compared this variety to Texas blue giant.

                Congrats guys, it should be a great one. My rooted cutting started producing a good amount of figs late this year, I sure can't wait to taste them next season.
