This doesnt address your issue of where to buy Sals for $20 and under, but thought Id point out the lengthy but interesting discussion last fall on the GW fig forum as to whether Sals and Hardy Chicago are the same fig. (see: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/fig/msg101415465988.html ) Another interesting aspect is that Belleclare Nursery sold two varieties of Sals fig on Long Island until they closed last Fall. They also sold Hardy Chicago under the local name of Bensonhurst Purple. Mike McConkey of Edible Landscaping has posted that he thinks Sals is the same as Hardy Chicago (see: http://elandscape.proboards55.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=1159361261). I bought both HC and Sals from Mike in the past and would disagree with him but they are quite similar, and his suppliers have confused the two since I made my purchases in 2001.

Not having any luck finding a Sal's fig, except for a few places that
want more than $20 for a plant......
