  • LSU Scott's Black

    I had few from this tree late last season, didn't really get a good representation due to cooling weather, SWD .... Oddly I recall the fig being a different shape before. I have another from another source that has not fruited yet. If this is true I see why folks like it so much, if not I may be happier. It really really impressed me, and I don't think it was just due to the cool but beautiful weather I have had in that last week that I have had few ripening nice. Does this look like your LSU Scott's Black?

    I hope to find out next year!!!!

    I have one from Petals From the Past (LSU black) and another I rooted from a generous member (Scott's black). I was not sure if they were the same, looks like they most likely are.

    I've knocked off a few figglets that started after July 4th, so I'm sure I'll be comparing with you next year!

      I know leaves can vary allot especially on small figs but here's a picture of my tiny LSU Scott's Black.

      Yours looks similar to other pics that I've seen. The breba is more elongated from pics I've seen.

        Looks like the one I have. Came from a trusted member. It actually is the most expensive fig tree I have bought, well worth it.

            Thanks all I thought I remembered it being a little longer fig, but probably bad memory taking more pictures this year. I shared some cuttings last spring so I try and followup if something might not be right.

              That looks like my Scott's Black.I planted my 2yo tree in ground last year and I had some ripe figs on October 13,2014.The tree was killed to the ground in Winter 2015. It is about 6' tall now and baby figs just started popping up on 9-13 so I don't expect any mature figs this year.My avatar pic is a Scott's Black.

                Phil,
                Thanks for sharing the photos and info. It looks similar to my LSU Black PP from Petals from the Past.
                IMO, they are very good figs, but late ripening at my location, they're not as good as VdB's but have the advantage of a tight eye when ripe.

                  Phil, is yours in ground and if so did it die back to the ground? Also is this the
                  first ripe figs you have gotten from it this year?

                  Mine died to the ground and has hundreds of green figs but none have
                  ripened so far.

                    They were put in ground in June, overwintered potted in garage. 1st fig from it this year and no others look very close yet that I have noticed

                      This may be one of those just taking up space if it dies to the ground
