  • LSU THIBODAUX- biggest fig ever

    I picked this huge LSU Thibodaux fig this morning. CajunB rooted it for me last summer (my youngest daughter lives in Thibodaux) and I planted it in the ground last Fall. It’s the biggest fig I’ve ever seen and taste great, to boot! Also picked a delicious Sangue Dolce and a BB10 that got knocked off before it was ripe. It is a beauty, but hope to get a real ripe one later. Today, I’m going to pick Celeste when it cools off to make preserves. They are tasting much better since we haven’t had rain in a over week. Suppose to have a light rain tomorrow so want to clear the trees.

      Boy, I love seeing that. Your in the 100 gram club!! I picked up a small LSU Thibodaux 6 weeks ago, growing great. It made two figs so far. I wonder what the average weight of LSU Thibodaux are?

        What did the LSU Thibo. taste like? I have a dozen or so on my little tree that are 2-3 weeks from ripening. Thanks.

            This is great to hear Hilliard. I got a Thibodeaux in the ground earlier this summer but didn’t realize they are so early. Congrats on that big boy!

                    Amoorebr,
                    LSU Thibodaux is very vigorous! I cut mine back to a single 40 inch trunk and it has put out 36 inch branches all over including a 3 foot central leader and it’s putting on figs now. I haven’t even fertilized it this year! The limbs are in disarray as we had a severe wind/hail/rain storm.Sunday.

                        I actually have been trying to make contact with Harold Daigle Jr. He is the guy who did the write up on fig varieties about the Thibodeaux. He brought a cutting home from one of the very early trees and planted it at his parents house in Baton Rouge. I rode by the parents house and there are several fig trees at the dads address and the 2 next door neighbors houses. I dont want to go and knock because the parents have to be really old so Im continuing other methods to contact either the son or the dad.I want a cutting off that early tree.
