Stella Fig Tree™

$19.95

Following a friend’s advice, we found this wonderful fig in a Southeast Portland neighborhood. Stella Fig Tree™ was brought here many years ago by an Italian sailor and is now cultivated and prized by his wife. This special variety caught our attention with its large size, sweet, striking, purplish-red flesh, and its ability to ripen in our cooler climate.

One of the easiest fruits to grow, and a true gourmet delight, you should not live your life without feasting on this sweet, delectable fruit. To fully enjoy fresh Figs you must grow your own. When fully ripe and at their tender, shipping them long distances is virtually impossible. Another plus for Figs – deer don’t like them (most of the time)!
