Fig trees harvested here at My Italian Fig tree in Milford, Ct. start out in a rooting bed. The cuttings, now growing fig trees, are transplanted outside.They winter over and spend another season in the field. This produces strong fig trees. We ship bare root cuttings March to the end of May, depending on your zone.
We wanted you to all know about all our trees we have on hand for you this season. But the "Smugglers Fig" has always sold out every year at our tree sales. But don’t worry our "bare root" stock will be available early spring. We strive to grow as natural as possible. Results are what count here. So when your healthy tree arrives you'll say, "My Italian Fig Tree is here!". Tell family and friends the figs on "my Italian fig tree will soon be ripe"...remember, "tradition, tradition".
It's important to know what you’re eating, it’s even more important to know what you are not eating. Great tasting figs grow on strong health trees and we start early in the cuttings life. We want you to know that all of our products are pesticide-free. We compost making our own soil that we mix w/sand and a premium organic peat moss. The fertility of our soil is tested by "The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station " in New Haven,Ct. No chemicals are used, except for some rooting compound when cloning. We don't even use that anymore! We strive to make sure that you and your family can rest assured knowing that your fig tree is as healthy as possible. The sweet taste and color of your fig will testify to this and ..yes "tradition"
Trees are shipped to your home in eco-friendly boxes that you can recycle. Fig trees are handled with care when packaged. Bare root cuttings are dormant when shipped. If you have any questions just give us call.
