This is a spectacular old variety from Southern France, brought to the U.S in the 1700s by fig enthusiast and US president, Thomas Jefferson. These figs are especially suited for southern climates, Jefferson noted that he had to protect plants from the cold at his home in Virginia. They can be grown against a south facing wall to create optimal conditions. These are a gorgeous whitefleshed fig with a green-yellow outside. Jefferson, who really knew his figs, claimed that they were the best he had ever eaten. (2 plants)

Please consider these terms before ordering live plants:
Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of March to the end of
May. We will try to ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed exact delivery dates. Plants may
arrive too early and have to be kept inside until the weather warms. Plants may arrive late, as well.
Due to the sensitive nature of small plants, there is the possibility of a crop failure. If such a situation
occurs, we will do our best to issue you a refund in a timely manner. Last minute losses can occur at
any point in our shipping timeline, and we may have to issue a refund even late in the season. No

orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs; you just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER MARCH 1, 2018)

What are the pros? I didn't buy from this site

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

I have lived in my home for 32 years, and the fig tree was here when we moved in. Every August/September the fruit is ripe, then it goes dormant in the winter. Every spring it comes back and restarts its cycle. It gets cold and icy here during the winter, so if you live in the Pacific Northwest and want a white fig tree go for it! It will thrive

Review:

I love figs and your description of the White Marseilles intrigued me. On March 16, my husband said my two trees arrived at our PO Box. Two trees fit in a PO Box? Then he handed me a padded 4"x 8" envelope. This can't be my live trees!! But I found 2 thumb-size plugs with tiny leaves growing on 3" of green "matchsticks". Precious baby trees! I planted them on 4" pots by the kitchen window. I was gone several days. My husband forgot to water. I came home to crispy brown fig leaves. I almost cried. I repotted the leafless twigs outdoors and watered daily, wondering if they've died. By May 26, they recovered with shiny leaves on them. They grew so fast with ordinary backyard soil, no feeds, I had to repot each again in 2 gallons. Today July 18, 4 mos 2 days old, under 102 F sun they are proudly 14-15 inches high from the base, wide as they are tall; thickly crowned with healthy foliage, some the size of my hand. I am eagerly expecting fruits--too hopeful! Thank you Baker Creek!!!

What are the pros? Strong on arrival

What are the cons? Slow growth

Review:

I've had mine almost two years now. Unfortunately, they seem to be very slow growing. The two I have are approaching about two feet, now. I have not seen any hint of fruit, yet. I commend Baker's Creek for sending out strong, healthy plants but can't say I'm not disappointed at the rate of growth. Hopefully, they'll decide to take off this year and we'll have an idea of the fruit soon.

What are the pros? Figs!

What are the cons? none

Review:

Planted these in five gallon buckets when I got them, and a whole lot of nothing happened the first year as it set roots. The end of the second year I brought them inside to overwinter with the rest of the plants. But instead of going semi-dormant, they decided to take off from the low indoor heat, and are now several feet tall in only a month and show no interest in dormancy. They seem to like lots of light and heat, only need minimal water, and appear to be doing well as large container plants. I don't think they would do well with any kind of snow or extended frost, but might thrive in a desert-like environment. Hoping for figs next year!

What are the pros? Customer service

What are the cons? That the first 2 died

Review:

I ordered these live plants from Baker Creek and didn't know what to expect. They came and I transferred them to a different pot and they both died so I contacted Baker Creek and they sent out two more and these ones took off like wildfire. The summer heat here in Pittsburg CA can reach triple digits and these plants love it I can't wait till they start to fruit in a couple of years! Hope to also get cuttings from them when they finally need to be trimmed and trained into their final form. Thank you Baker Creek your customer service is bar none I'm impressed and will be a continued customer.
