  • Jack Lily!!

    Just picked this bad boy a few min ago. I been out of town the last 2 days and I was very suprised to see the size of this fig. I thought Lsu gold was a big fig until I put them side by side. The Jack Lily is on the left. It was really good and sweet. A little different flavor then the gold, I can't quite put my finger on it. The Lsu gold is at their peak in North La at my dad's place. I think the Jack Lily was a little better.

                I agree. Last year Jack Lily was in my top 5 figs, and my best honey fig of the year. Unfortunately, I lost the whole tree early this year to boring beetles.

                ahh i see, jack lily seems to be better resistance to splitting than lsu gold.

              Ryan all is mostly well. Thinning out my trees to a few of the best and have added persimmons, loquats, muscadines, blackberry, and mulberry to the yard. I should have some fresh fruits all year. Wishing you the best.
