  • Various cuttings for trade (DONE)

    I finished pruning my trees and have the below cuttings available. Ideally, I'd like to trade for Corynth, but I'm open to any interesting trade (not just figs). I'm also willing to pass along cuttings for postage to growers ramping up their collections.
    Variety # cuttings
    Adriatic JH 2
    Italian Honey traded
    LSU Scott's Black TRADED
    LSU Tiger Traded
    Lyndhurst White 5
    Malta Black traded
    Qalaat al Madiq Traded
    Ronde de Bordeaux(thinnish) Traded
    Smith traded
    Stella traded
    St Rita Traded
    Takoma Violet traded
    Unknown Chios 3
    Unknown Italian 4
    The unknowns were local finds. They have been grown in ground by the people who brought them to Lancaster, PA. They both seem to have a lot in common with the Mt Etna type figs. The Unknown Italian was brought over by an Italian gentleman and grown in ground unprotected. The trees were growing quite well until the polar vortex, after which they were killed to the ground but grew back from the soil line. The leaf pattern and fruit is much like a Mt Etna type, except the fruit is a bit smaller and appears to have resisted rain a bit better than the other Etnas I was growing. The Unknown Chios was brought from a village on Chios to Lancaster, PA and is still being growing in a semi-protected spot between two houses by the Greek family who brought the cuttings to the US. The tree is not covered or winter-protected apart from its planting spot. As far as I know, the tree produces fruit each season and is a vigorous grower. It is very similar to an Etna fig, although it is Greek in origin.

    Edits 12/4/16: updated cutting count; Noire de Barbentane fulfilled, changed wishlist choice to Corynth; added St. Rita; added more description of unknowns.

    Johnny,
    I am interested in your Unknown Italian and Lyndhurst White cuttings. I started growing figs last year. I don't have the variety you are looking for, but I have a large collection of heirloom apple trees if you are interested in scion wood. I would be happy to pay for shipping, if you are not. Thanks. Casey

      Casey,

      I'll set aside some Unknown Italian and Lyndhurst White cuttings for you. I am interested in apple scion, but maybe for the future. I'm still in the process of espalier training my apples. I'll have to keep you in mind for people to contact when I'm ready to play with apple grafting. PM your mailing address, and I'll prep the cuttings to ship to you.

          I am very new figs so only have three varieties of figs to trade yellow long neck, Olympian, and the black Italian. However I have multiple varieties of muscadine grapes, pomegranates and mulberries for cuttings if you are interested.

              I have the following three varieties: Angel red, Salavatski, and Wonderful. The Salavatski is the most cold tolerant variety. However it is the youngest bush with smaller diameter cuttings.

                Sorry. I can not give you any angel red cuttings because it is patented. However per edible landscaping the Salavatski has been grown in Lancaster PA

                  Salavatski works for me if you have wood to spare. PM me with what you want to trade for.

                          Trades all done! I am officially out of cuttings, unless for some strange reason I get stir crazy over the winter and decide to reshape a couple of trees from multi-stem bush form into single-stem tree form.

                          Happy rooting to the cutting recipients!
