            Mine came from mgwillis55 @ ebay 2015, Houma, Louisiana.
            I have several fig plants from him. I am very pleased with the quality of his plants.

                I've acquired a good amount of the LSU figs, I will look to add a Scott's Yellow in the near future.

                  Thanks Danny and Jerry, Charles is a stand up guy. I've met him on several occasions and have gotten trees from him. In fact he also grows vegetables and offered me some but at the same time I started having medical issues and did get to take him up on the offer.

                          My Champagne is smaller and more uniform dark gold color than the larger Smith looking LSU Scott’s Yellow. Am I right Brian? I do not view them to be the same fig as reported below. Ummmm?

                                  Compared to LSU Gold - the Scott's Yellow is a little bit figgier, but is not as sweet as the Gold. Before Scott's Yellow the Gold was my favorite Yellow fig, now I don't know and won't know for a year or so.

                                    Thanks for the comparo Danny. My Gold is growing very healthy and strong in a 5 gal nursery pot as per your advise and thanks very very much. I don't think I'll get any fruit this year but it is growing to be one of my favorites. If I find a Scott's yellow this coming weekend at the LSU Field day I'm driving home with it! Another LSU fig nut in the house.

                                    I heard that LSU Gold's open eye makes it very susceptible to spoilage when heavy rains happen while ripening.

                                  Did everyone hear Dr. Johnson say that Golden Celeste and LSU Yellow were the same

                                  AND

                                  BOTH are identical, as in the same, to the OFFICIAL LSU released

                                  CHAMPAGNE!

                                  Boy I didn't see that coming.

                                    Wait, did you say LSU Yellow = LSU Champagne = Golden Celeste?

                                    Wow, this should bring Dan back.

                                          Yep the same! I guess technically Champagne is the only correct name now. If your GC or LSU Yellow doesn't look like a verified Champagne then it must be something else.

                                          Please do not shoot the messenger! Before we left yesterday I confirmed it with Dr. Johnson and asked if I could quote him. He said I could. I think that Hershell was the witness to that.

                                            I heard the part about the Champagne and the Golden Celeste but I did not hear the Scott's Yellow included in that conversation. Just might not have heard it.

                                              He did not say "Scott's" Yellow just LSU Yellow. Although it seems reasonably that Scott's Yellow would also be the same.

                                              He did say that Scott's Black and LSU Black are the same.

                                              He also said there never was a LSU Red!
