Happily there is a multitude of fig cutting offerings on F4F for Americans. 
To try and reach the other grow fig  lovers this offer is for Canadians and those in countries that allow importing fig cuttings from Canada. 
3 cuttings of Ciccio Nero for shipping cost only.  Post here or send me PM for details.

Ciccio Nero has been my best performing in ground Zone 6 fig for over 50 years.  It is still in my top 10 figs for taste and I have many producing fig cultivars all taste profiles. 
Ciccio Nero also roots readily and is  easy to grow in containers and usually produces figs in 2nd year.  Taste is rich dark berry, super sweet when fully ripe.  Will dry on tree if left on. 

Some links of Ciccio Nero with photos and more descriptions.

You definitely have some very attractive varieties listed in your site for sale, Pino... Wish they were also available to us.... Anyone in the states have the Ciccio Nero that can provide cuttings for sale?

Don Ciccio would have been very happy see that there will be many more people in Canada growing his great cool climate fig!
 
This fig has a tight closed eye and never splits so also a great fig for hot climates or places where there is a lot of rain during ripening.  It is a big producer (everbearing), delicious dark berry taste and super sweet when ripe.

To spread the love of figs I am extending this offer to 2017 to ALL
condition; Please only if your country allows importing fig cuttings from Canada.
3 cuttings of Ciccio Nero for shipping cost only.
Send me PM for details.
Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays!

Thanks Pino for all the great photos that you recently put up on your website!!!!

Now when I am researching a fig I can go to your site to see what the fig looks like - both the outside and the inside.  Really valuable information for me and I think for everyone else too.

Now the only thing that is missing (only from my point of you) is  what the leaf looks like (I know I am making work for you).   This would be useful if I am trying to identify a fig.  Just a thought.

Angela

p.s. looking forward to getting my cuttings soon

I am envious of our Canadian forum brothers and sisters. In Pino. you all have access to a super source of excellent fig varieties and at wonderful price points from an knowledgeable, generous and trusted forum member without worry of running afoul of import restrictions. What an excellent way to build up your inventory of tasty figs!

I think he likes to travel....Perhaps we can arrange some sort of international fig-master exchange program? :-)

But we get him back when you're done....

@Tony thanks for the feedback.  Glad to hear!  They will be your fav in ground dark fig undoubtedly. the great taste, no splitting, cold hardy and big production!  These will always have a place in your fig collection even as your collection grows with all the many other amazing figs out there that need a little more care up north.

@Tony S - thanks for your kind words!

T.O. Joe you might have something there!  the northern US has more in common with S. Ontario than the south when it comes to growing figs. 
I love NY state (the mountains, ski resorts, lakes..) and have met the friendliest people in the world.  I am less than 10 miles from the border so used to practically live there.

Well its that time of year. Time to protect my in ground fig trees for winter. Pruning to make them fit their winter houses is part of the process so lots of fig cuttings is the result.

Annual free fig offering (cost of shipping) as described in topic. This year I am adding some other figs to the offer; Cotia, U.K. Yellow, and Encanto Honey the F4F mascot fig.

E-mail me if interested don't PM here because I can't access. Or see my website and contact me there.
