    71GTO is selling some cuttings on eBay right now, but you will have some stiff competition.
    Wish List: I need another fig tree like I need a hole in the head.

          Forum member Frank D aka FiggyFrank and fdd1212 on eBay had beautiful Col Littmans cuttings on eBay for a number of weeks in September as "buy it now" cuttings and at only $20 a cutting which honestly was not as much a price as it was a give-away ... I agree with Ficus_Vitae .... if you are looking to add this variety, you should closely follow the ebay auction by 71GTO.... I doubt the winning bid will be in the $20 dollar a stick neighborhood but what the heart wants....

            A difficult rooter... good grafting candidate and then air layer afterwards....

          I have a couple gifted from Frank.

          Definitely a slow rooter. About a month in, nothing yet.

            I am growing this variety, a somewhat slow grower compared with black Madeira. I am seeing some figlets develop finally!

              Wow... Last second feeding frenzy on eBay really drove the price of those cuttings up.... Guess someone or two really wanted those cuttings...

                I do have some cuttings of Col. Littmans Not sure how many as I still have some to send out to a couple folks. Was holding them for a good trade, but would sell for 71GTO money and just buy what I want.

                      They were slow to start, but now seem determined.

                            They are down to 4 now... the shipping added to the cost is what really pushes the price tag up... Then again... $70 bucks for an established plant may not be too high at all...
