  • ??? LSU varieties on eBay ???

    Someone is selling LSU cuttings on eBay but they have Hardy Chicago and Alma listed as a LSU varieties.
    Does anyone know who this is?
    As far as I know Hardy Chicago is from Sicily, (a long way from Louisiana).
    As for Alma, wasn't it developed in Texas?

    @ F4F his member name is Figpig_66, I don't believe that he's a member here...
    The cuttings are alleged to be from the cultivars growing at the LSU test fields...

      Apparently, he is selling cuttings he got at the LSU fig day on 7/11/15. The LSU orchard has Alma, Hardy Chicago and the others listed.

        He lives near there and has gotten cuttings there a lot. They may be from his own trees that he grew from those cuttings or it may be a mixture..

          I thought someone was either trying to pull one over on people or miss informed on where the figs were bred. Thanks Pete and Wisner for clearing that up.

            I was there and they allowed you to take all the cuttings you wanted. Some took them out in bags.

              It did get awkward when you backed your truck up IN the orchard.
