So being a newbie, I really don’t know how much a fig tree are worth. Until about 1 year ago, all I knew was black mission and Italian fig. Never heard if anything else. I been trying to grow a fig on my terrace, on and off for several years, and they always died by the end of the year. But this past year we bought a house and I want to plant one. I searched “fig tree” and all of a sudden a million varieties came up. Naturally, I then search for “best fig”, and several YouTube videos are talking about ben’s golden riverside. “ NOW THATS WHAT I NEED”. I saw cuttings for $80, so naturally I would think a rooted tree would be much more. If I had the money, sure why not, but I don’t. Since cutting are the cheapest way of getting these highly sought out figs, I’ll just work on my rooting skills. And maybe I’ll find a diamond in the rough. But I can see how people are willing to pay top dollar for these. Also you can’t blame the seller, for selling at high prices if there are buyers. I just wish there were places I can buy ( not bid) some cuttings at a reasonable price. Even here, except for a few, you can one trade if you have something that someone wants, so unless you have a really sought out variety, your out of luck. Your common mission won’t get you a more exotic fig. But one feature about this site. It gives everyone a chance to get the rare cutting. I guess I’ll keep on putting in “number 101”! Thanks everyone. BTW, I been learning a lot from here and everyone here is super helpful.
