Can't help you for the milk but I did get a Tuscany Fig tree yesterday, it is quite nice and resistant, produces all year round. The grower had 3 greek, 2 Italian and one Egyptian Variety.
can it work indoors?
i have a small condo and i do my herbs on the window
is it possible to do the fig tree inside?
please tell me where i can go and how much it cost thank yous!!!!!!!

The italian cat at Jean Talon Market (north East side across from Samy) might still have a few. They are expensive, he had 2 or 3 left, small ones. He is a bit of a shister ie: he sells heirloom tomatoes that are not and Espelete peppers that are not. He does also have olive and bay leave trees that are obscenely expensive (my bay leave tree is 6 foot tall and originally purchased 25$, he sells 6 inch tall clones for 30$... same for his olive trees). I guess it's the typical horror of Jean Talon racket.
The fig trees are really nice though and well worth. After research, it appears I have a blanche d'argenteuil variety, originally French. I know there is a Quebecois all year around producer, he might have a few trees also, he has a small orchad that is covered in the winter.

I would suggest trying some garden-flower shops in the italian district or even up around the marche central-arabic area... Lots of italian have huge fig trees in plastic pots in the backyards around the JTM. I'm gonna make clones for next year. Thank good my inlaws leave during the winter, I can store trees in their house...
