Typing our Fig Cuttings
All of our products are grown from trees on our farm. We don't sell anything that comes from a third party. We use the name that our source material had and try to provide enough photos and videos of the plant or fruit for you to confirm type through your own research. Unfortunately we can't provide genetic testing or an extended pedigree. But if you have any questions about a specific product, please contact us.
Specific Cultivar Information
Other than a brief description, we don't go into detail on whether a plant will or will not survive in your location. We are maritime pacific northwest zone 8A. Our winter cold temperatures will occasionally dip into the low 20's. The mother plants of all our cuttings survive unprotected outdoors here. Because we don't have any experience with these plants in other zones, we don't provide specific growing information for other locations. Please visit Ourfigs.com or other resources to make a decision on what will work in your area.
How we harvest and store our cuttings
All of our cuttings are harvested when they go dormant. Immediately after the harvest, we sanitize the cuttings and store them in a climate controlled cooler at 37F.
Some Specifics on our Fig Cuttings.
Our fig cuttings are harvested when they are dormant. Dormancy for hardwood cuttings normally begins in late November.
We propagate all of our fig trees by rooting so the length and caliper are optimized for the rooting process. However, they can also be used for grafting if you can find a branch that matches the diameter of our cutting.
Our cuttings are first year wood at least eight inches long and will have three or more well-formed buds. We aim for a diameter that is greater than 3/8".
How we process your order
We only sell when we are ready to ship. When you order, we pull your sticks from our cooler or harvest directly from our field. We then pack your order in a cardboard box keep it in a cool location until we transport it to the Post Office. We only ship on Mondays (or Tuesdays if Monday is a holiday) to avoid having the plant material spend the weekend in the postal system. For more information on how we ship, see our shipping policies.
