  • Top 10 fig

    LSU Red is a very delicious fig........complex flavor,with a hint of berry mixed in with the sweetness of Celeste,the best of both worlds.Also for extras,does not split in heavy rains .

    My LSU Red will fruit for the first time on second year wood. I am going to have the chance to taste LSU St.Gabriel, O'Rourke, Thibodeaux, Tiger, Champagne, Gold, Scotts Yellow and Black this season. RdB is still one of my top tasting figs.

    Wishing for a LSU Late Black. PM me if you have a figlet. 😉

      I thought that i had read that Scott's Black and Late Black were the same fig? Are they the same?

      Cliff, if my readings about LSUs are up
      to date - Scotts Black and Black are the same. LSU Late Black is different. My Late Black decided on its on to die...so it did before I could compare it to the other Blacks. Someone correct me if I am mistaken.

        Just went back to Dan/Kingfigs posts on the other forum. The LSU fig guru that he is denotes three LSU Black figs - Scott's, Saint Gabriel and Late Black. In the same thread Dan states that Scott's Black and Black are the same. Good case of unauthorized plants with attached names. I hope this helps.

          I have figs on all three LSUs. It will be great to compare them. Thanks for the input or comparison.😄

        The key identifier of the LSU Scott's Black is the red interior, if it is not red inside it is not a Scott's Black. Good fig!!

            Hello Allen,from my experience with the LSU Red,very hard to root, slow grower,it has to be pampered or you will lose it,but I think its worth the trouble cause the fig is that good.
