    Good luck finding this one, Jennifer! I fear that unless you're willing to pay the big bucks, it may take a couple years for it to be widely available.

    You could however grow... Bordissot Negra, Brogiotto Nero or Bourjassotte black as they are the same thing without the pretty stripes AND they're all widely available!

    I hear ya, Ross. I felt kinda silly posting for it at all. Might as well be a wanted post for a unicorn with how scarce it is.

      At least you aren't looking for a purple unicorn...

      If I had a unicorn, I'd certainly share with you! Unless it was a purple unicorn. Lol 🤣

      LMAO Oh I'm sure that if I sent money to figcuttings.com, James will definitely have it and shipped out in no time flat.

      Jennifer, it's such a special variety. Montserrat's baby really. It's so slow growing for some and there have been some mix ups as well. I know Adam has a pair on EBay he goes by Bamboobear. I'm sure someone will start grafting out but for now it's going to be difficult to find. Adams tree is growing rather nicely he has the perfect climate and it's in ground. Such a prized variety hope you get it.

            Yep. Now, no more cuttings for me for the rest of 2017. That's what I'm telling myself.

            That would only cover your Christmas present. You need to get ready for the New Year present.

            Congratulations on winning the bidding!

            I was going to go "all in" til' the wife accessed the PayPal account and zeroed it out.

            I managed Adams' striped Blanca-Negra, so I have already been scratching my greed for the year, lol.

            All the best rooting! Mike

              Adam's Blanca-Negra appears to be unique in that cultivar in the way that the striping is so pronounced and acquiring it is an excellent score.... Congratulations to you too...

                Adam Derekson was my source. You can contact him at Foothill Figs on FB.

              Jennifer and I are just alike we both swear off buying any more cuttings until we see another one we want or do not have. Figs are worse than being hooked on crack.
