  • LSU Hollier-tiny with a punch

    Had my first few LSU Hollier figs. I wasn’t expecting much by looking at my first year figs. They figs were tiny and weren’t much to look. Once I got to taste them I was very surprised! It was very sweet and tasty, slightly honey with almost a hint of apricot flavor. Excited to taste the others on the tree. How do ya’ll like the flavor of LSU Hollier?

    I've got a 2 month old cutting that I hope will grow like crazy before having to head to the garage over winter. That fruit looks great on the inside and I can appreciate the outside for what it promises.

      I have two small rooted cuttings, but they are coming on strong now. I’m really looking forward to fruit next year!

        I’ve heard it’s one that really improves as the tree matures. My tree is probably about 7’ tall and 7’ wide now. That’s about as big as I want them to be. Last years fruits were ok. This years breba were quite good. And the tree is just loaded with main crop. I’m really looking forward to it!

          Looks great. I have one that I obtained in late spring as a trade. Out of the LSU varieties Hollier is the ones I been wanting. Looks great based off your pics. I find that smaller figs usually pack big flavor.

            LSU Hollier is rated very high in my book. It's one of my first 5 to ripen every year and the honey flavors it has is very unique compared to some of the other honey figs like Italian honey .

              Thanks for the review. I plan on adding Hollier to my small collection.

                Reading this I get very excited. I have LSU Hollier that I rooted in January. Didn't really expect anything this year. But it looks like I might get a taste after all.
