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) We are super excited to be offering a selection of live plants, these are produced for us by tissue culture, a natural process that produces plants that are generally high-quality and disease free. We have some stunning new food crops in our plant listing, we hope you will try some of the exciting rare plants we offer this year. Pre-order now, as supplies on some these will be limited. The plants we ship are small, but sturdy, and we offer a 30 day guarantee on live plants. Most plants will be 6”-12” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of April to the end of June. We will ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed delivery dates. No orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs, just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER MARCH 1, 2018)

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.

Review:

Have had two Marseilles figs for about a year. Had to adjust their soil and placement. Larger containers and placed on a south facing wall. Now have fruit forming on the plants. Looking forward to fresh figs. Thank you!

What are the pros? Easy to take care of

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

Received April 2016, healthy, 6" tall plants like those on the fig assortment pictures. Placed 4 gallon containers immediately with some general store potting mix (I think moisture control kind) and they grew to about 3 feet by the fall sitting in full sun with plenty of water. In fall, I moved one inside by a window and let the colder temperatures @ 40 F start to cause leaf die back and dormancy on the other. Interesting sidenote: the leaves when they turn yellow/die they put off a strong scent that I would describe almost like coconut. I placed this one in an attached unheated garage in a partially insulated dark closet and watered it a little once or twice when it felt really dry. The one inside had spindly growth through the winter, but I will put them both in the garage this fall as the one from outdoors is putting off much stronger growth now (8" so far). Diluted fertilizer has been used on both and they need re-potting already. No figs yet, will update when I see/try them.

Came in great shape! Took very well in pots and put on about 7 inches of growth. Must keep them indoors in zone 6, though.

What are the pros? Beautiful tree.

What are the cons? What's to dislike?

Review:

I bought mine 25 years ago from Monticello. It died back to the ground every year, regardless of protection, until there was a La Nina winter. Once the secondary wood survived, the tree took off. Produced a small spring crop and a substantial fall crop. Pick once the stem of the fruit starts to sag under the weight, but be careful, hornets love them too. It is like eating liquid sugar. I puree it, freeze it for sorbet. The cold seems to bring out more flavor. The 25 foot tree was cut back to the ground in 2010. It didn't like 3 feet of snow for 2 months, which is not normal for this area. (Neither did Lady Banks and a lot of other trees in my yard.) But it is now recovering. Waiting for another La Nina. Shouldn't there be one this coming winter? I would not recommend this for anything colder than Zone 7.
