Daniel Mitre - Black Madeira Figs from Amazon

I took a chance and purchased some more Black Madeira figs from Daniel Mitre. He sells on Amazon and Ebay.

I bought 2 cuttings from him in the summer and they rooted but were not very strong. So I bought 4 more but was only sent 2 by mistake. Hopefully he will send the rest of my order soon. at $10 a stick it's a bit more digestible than the astronomical prices Ebay auctions are fetching.

Anyhow this time around I will use the lasgna method along with alot of love and Shungite infused water. What's Shungite you ask?


Shungite is very old, ancient in fact, said to be around 2 billion years old. It is an extraordinarily positive stone, and using it may bring you a variety of blessings.
This is an amazing stone, and one that is beneficial to a healthy life.
It is the only known natural material known to contain fullerenes, which are powerful anti-oxidants.
Fullerenes were brought to our attention when research on them gained the scientists a Nobel prize. This is because the fullerenes in this stone will cleanse water then infuse it with a potent healing vibration.
The energy embodied within this ancient stone is said to absorb and eliminate anything that is a health hazard to human life, and it has active metaphysical properties with strong healing powers.

 Combine Shungite and the metaphysical study by Dr Masaru Emoto, that writing something positive such as the word "Love" on your water or container can affect it's resistance to mold and it's crystallized structure.

Check out the video and photos below. It's very interesting. Others have tried this method on simple rice and the container of rice that had love on it did not get any mold while the ones that weren't labelled or negatively labelled all had mold growing all over it.

So I figure why not try it out on figs. If simply writing love on my rooting container can help it root better, why not.

What would you eat figs that have been grown with love or hate?

I'll follow up more as the experiment ensues.


  1. Hi Ben, how are the black madeira's cuttings doing (lasagna method), you seem to be very into black madeira's these days?

    1. LOL yeah a little bit, I haven't heard anyone say that this is a bad fig so it must be as good as everyone makes it out to be... hopefully.
