Bought some fig cuttings from ebay (they are coming from portugal). What is the best way to strike these? Does anybody know what they are (they are not black genoa I asked).

definately not black genoa,
check out the pictures on the figs4fun website.
are you aware of all the conditions that must be met for them to be allowed into the country, will be expensive
and take at least 9 months.

On the other hand you might get lucky and they make it in. But more than likely you are going to get a nasty letter in the mail telling you that you were bad and not to do it again. I find that there's so many secret old fig varieties hiding in yards around Australia that you can keep yourself very busy finding those.

Agree jason, that fig may already be here?
Plus drought, water restrictions, development-turning backyards into unit blocks, fruit fly restrictions, and passing away of older migrant Australians means alot of varieties under threat.
Worth tracking those down too.
I propose forming a White Choko Brigade, to counter the white shoe brigade and their like.

I have looked through ICON definitions and conditions for importing ficus carica cuttings and....cannot find any. No doubt these come under the umbrella of:
"All plant material must be grown and tested at a post entry quarantine facility approved by DAFF for growing tropical/temperate fruit species".

That said, I recently imported some purple potato tubers from argentina, which is apparently a no-no, according to the man on the end of the telephone I spoke to today, when I called the DAFF. I asked him to explain how it is possible that I received them at all, and he could not. I think it is a lottery.

Basically, if they are picked up by quarantine, my choices are to pay exorbitant amounts of money and wait nine months to get them, which I have absolutely no intention of doing, or else have them destroyed, which is what I'll be going with.

Anyway, might get lucky, might not.
