Here's probably one of my favorite Figs "Stella", the tree is loaded this year with big yellow Figs with Red centers.
Good luck, to all members here, especially the ones in Florida. : )

I believe the tree had a few Figs the 1st year, but was loaded the second year!

Thanks for posting those beautiful photos, Frankallen. I can't help but want one! Can anyone comment on how well Stella would produce figs if growing in Zone 9b's summer heat?

A Duckduckgo .com search says Stella loves the heat...most figs do if thier roots are kept mulched and fed plenty of water...the same search said cool desert nights delays ripening...

The same search told me Stella was originally sold by "one green world" mail order nursery, and is the name of a southern Italian town.


caveat, I do not have stella, and I do not recommend "One green World".

I have never had a problem with "One Green World" I have bought several trees from them and they all turned out to be the cultivar I had ordered. : )

My order years ago was a fair amount of seabuckthorn and one stone pine....none of which are alive today. The one pine got run over three times before it died.

Cant comment on figs, but Seabuckthorn from OGW tends to be stunted due to the small pot it grows in, and they do not recover well (bare root is much better). Other people have had that issue as well. Stone pine can be had very cheap from the university of Austin (like 2 bucks a seedling), and even with the persistant droughts here some survived and are doing OK with little to no additional water.

Glad your orders went well, and if you say they are GTG for figs, if they still sell Stella, then I would consider them as a source.

I "discovered" my Stella (previously an unknown I called Getty Green) about 6-7 years ago on Getty Ave Clifton. I recently saw 2 large trees in Rutherford that look identical. Been meaning to stop by and talk to them.

Stella - Clifton
