I noticed this seller has some interesting varieties for sale that I can't find much info on. I also can't find much info on this seller and no mention on the boards? Has anyone had any experience with this seller? Thanks in advance.

Thanks everyone! Brian, do you have any other info on the Cardenillo? It appears to have a yellow skin?

Very vigorous and was rated as one of the top tasting figs in Malaysia. Very sweet and large. Common fig.This is a Spanish variety.

Nice.... Congratulations! That was a beautiful specimen of MR and IMHO, I actually think that you got it at a bargain price considering the quality you are getting.... If you monitor e-Bay, you would have seen some awesome auctions for quality figs end over the last few days with the auctions ending for considerably more dollars. The MR is a beautiful looking fig that a number of members have posted pictures of this year and your plant, I think, is going to bring you great happiness.... Again, congratulations and enjoy!

Thank you! Yea I saw how much the one Harvey had on ebay sold for! I'm curious, what is the benefit of this variety being grafted to a different fig rootstock?

FYI the rootsock is from seedlings grown last year. They are the most vigorous and will only accelerate growth. That MR will get big quick and probably produce next year. Congrats
