  • Romano-NERO-fig-plant

    Does anyone know about this fig variety or its seller. It is a 6 inch plant for $105 delv'd out of California.

    I have Nero 600M and Nero (Richard Watts) and wondered if they are the same as or how similar they are to the above.

    I would be concerned, after seeing spelling errors, and the 80 dollar price for his panache. The listing says 15 cm plants- that's not even 6 inches tall

      Not to seem pessimistic but I think the 1st question should be whether this is a Known or Trusted Vendor.

      And Nero simply means Black or Dark.

        yeah agree with the trusted seller part. I have seen that photo used in a few different listings for both trees and cuttings, from different sellers, including different sellers from other countries. I came close to buying one once, then decided to back out at the last second after google searching the photo.

          I agree with cdeguida4. I think that is a scam. I definitely wouldn't touch that sale.

          That's the stock image for Monrovia Black Jack figs.

          If you ever want to google an image, just go to http://google.com/images and drag the photo onto the page.

          I bought cuttings on ebey Romano Nero. Low quality cuttings. I do not expect any success.
