It's from Portugal. You guys have the best figs in the world, according to all the fig enthusiasts around here. Search for preto fig or figo preto on ebay.

RiversOFT, I know some people in California that sell them on ebay. Just make sure their reputations are good. The one closest to me is in Simi Valley. They're probably waiting for the winter so the new growth hardens so they can sell or root them to sell. Taking cuttings now just means less cuttings since there's still more time for them to get longer.
