Well you have some nice trees, I have seen several varieties from various forum member/fb peeps..do you ship cuttings? I know you don't sell/ship plants to CA :(  I noticed your ebay awhile back. I have been getting most of my plants local since shipping police sniff my mail. lol

Cheers,

It's called a Sunbubble. I paid about $210 including delivery. Available at lots of places at lots of prices. It's not something you use thru the summer. I plan on using it spring and fall. In the spring it's good for the veggies and to wake up a couple of figs early. I took it down early June. At the time, with the door fully open and a fan inside blowing out the door it would get to about 110 degrees. I'm hoping the heat helps the fall figs ripen, we'll see. Comes in a larger size. By myself takes about 30 minutes to set up. The side struts can be a little tricky to attach. I added a cable tie to the ends of each strut, just in case. They give you 6" staples to attach it to the ground. I bought 12" instead, sunk 2 at each attach point and added a rope from top to center ground. The thing that worried me it was rated to 40 mph winds. In the spring I usually spend a lot of time moving plants outside and then back in when cold or too much rain is forecast. It was a pleasure leaving everything outside. Saved a lot of back and forth.  If I get 2 seasons out of it I'll be happy. I wanted to save as much plastic bending as possible so I store it upright in a corner of my basement (I have a high ceiling) instead of the included case. Not hard but not quite as easy as the video shows.

As with most products, reviews are not all positive

Really have to say that tasting my first BM from this tree was an amazing experience! It really has an intense berry taste to it that takes a short while to notice but wow does it impress. Many Thanks to forum member who grows incredibly large air layers and beautiful trees. This is a keeper and completely makes me enjoy growing this particular cultivar.
