  • What is Labritja Fig, anyone have it, is there a different name for it

    I bid and lost on this variety and checked later to find out the two cuttings sold for over $200, I bid on it because the fruits looked great in the pic, but didnt expect it to be that desirable.

    I lost 5 listings for FDM4USA cuttings, I only bid on these because the fruits looks really good and a couple of them seems like a really good for dry figs. Im really disappointed I couldn't get at least one. Good luck for whoever won them.

      Just wait on all of them. Let them get spread around, the price will drop and people will report on which ones are good.

        This definitely seems like the smart play. Surprising they’re going for so much given how little info seems available for some of em.

          They do "the fig shuffle" in Chicago.
          The cuttings are imported by the status quo method, then propagated legally here in the U.S.

          The seller's first and only mention of this variety was on figbid from Old Greenwich. I thought that the variety was imported to the United States recently.
          Is this some raritet from a small village on a small island? Or a synonym for a varieties well known on the mainland?
