I'm stumped 

But then I'm not the only one who's confused.

Remember the other day I said that my Viburnum Bodnantense 'Charles Lamont' is in full bloom RIGHT NOW!  

Well, the Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles' which grows behind it, is blooming NOW as well  - do they think they're in the Antipodes?

Hollows in fig tree branch stumps - a problem?

Which variety is it? Are you planting it in a greenhouse or outside - if it's outside it will fill with water and then you have the potential for rot - if it's inside you can probably keep water out of it .

If it was a real bargain and it's the best that they've got, and you don't mind that it's a lopsided plant and you're willing to take a risk then you can choose to go for it

Or would you rather spend a bit more on the right plant - only you can make that decision. 

As a comparison, last year I paid about £15  for a well-grown Brown Turkey fig tree - nearly 3ft tall and the same across with half a dozen good branches and already bearing some figs.

It also looks as if it ought to be scented at night and attractive to moths

It says solanum to me - but I've never seen one like that
