  • Will The Real L S U RED Please Stand UP !!

    Hello Group I am opening this up for discussion to see if we can get some information on this. I live here in the home State of L S U and I am a collector of all L S U Varieties. We have two claims to the L S U RED from two sources. Both claim it came from a outside source both claim it came from L S U here in Louisiana. L S U commitment to agricultural production here in the State of Louisiana they do sugar cane, citrus,fruit trees and even a trial on banana trees at one time to be grow by farmers here in the state as cash crops.This is what Dr.O'Rourke Breeding Programs was for finding and creating the best Figs for cash crops here in the state.The data base at L S U has all records of location and growers here and outside resources in the breeding Program of Dr. O'Rourke including farm location. All trees had breeding numbers like the Scott's Black is (L55-2-66) As well as U C Davis does. If they ship you anything you know what they ship you. This way they and you know what they are no guess work here.I talk to Charlie Johnson on and off and any tree at any location are number so this should be no mystery and have his phone number at the campus if other question come about P M me if you need to. So I am asking for information and I get no answers. it is a Big Mystery and should not be their is nothing to hide. L S U will give you cuttings and if your a Botanist with doing research they will ship you cuttings and forms for free nothing to hide so why the Big Mystery .Now I welcome any information now Here are the two claims to the L S U RED On E bay . Non-released LSU cultivator. Extremely rain resistance and excellent tasting. Red exterior color with light red interior. main crop began to rip around mid-late Aug. No sign or symptoms of FMV in past several years that I'm growing this cultivators. It's a must have varinat for serious growers.

    You can view and read more about this varinat by searching for the threads that I posted on F4F, few seasons agoI'm Navid (nkesh099) on F4F LSU Red is a delicious and productive variety. not an official release from the LSU breeding program. Dr. O'Rourke sent cuttings to a botanist in North Carolina labeled as something else, but it was clearly a different variety once it fruited. The botanist named it as LSU Red. The tree is productive and fruits later than Celeste, starts ripening late August into September. pulp is amber and rich. My source is from the original grower who named it LSU Red By BASS
    These are from two different sources as I was told Will the real L S U RED Please Stand UP

    Navid,

    Do you know the name of the botanist who received the LSU Red cuttings early on, in North Carolina. Living in the Raleigh area I would be willing to track this botanist down - should he or she be alive. I got my LSU Red from Wills. Big Mysteries are fun, but I would like to know more about facts and history of LSU Red Thank you for your post.

      Pukzpukz or whoever you are,

      I told you several times via eBay messaging (many messages that you sent me), I will not name my source. Seems like you don't get it! Source or my LSU Red, a good friend of mine, asked me years ago to keep his name private- and I will honor his wish. So please stop sending messages via eBay, this forum or erc to get me tell you who's my source is.

      You can ask whoever else that grows this variant to reveal their sources, but please keep my name out of you mouth.

      Navid.

        Hi Hershell I would have to disagree with you on this one sorry. I guess I need to SLOW DOWN .This is about documenting A Rare Fig from L S U Breeding Program. Which I thought I made real clear when I first posted this. Hershell You were at L S U FIg Day Did you see all the Trees with breeding Programs numbers on All the trees their that Day.??? I would like to know the L S U RED breeding Program number scene it came from their. If their are to be any Debate or Cat Fight as someone mention It would have to be between the two party that have made different clams on record to the L S U Red, and I guess it would have too have the same breeding program number if it is the same FIG one of them should have the number. Does anyone Know who named this the L S U RED???? I would welcome any help in documenting this fig with L S U Thanks

      Hershell,

      I will not show stay silent when someone brings my name in a threat. The OP (puktzpukyz, Joe) had send me several messages via eBay messaging asking who was the source of my LSU Red. I replied to him politely and told him that I couldn't disclose the name of my source. He then began to send more messages and became very rude. I stopped replying. Now he's back at again and posting on the forum, mentioning my name! And you wnat me not to say anything? Maybe before jumping into conclusion and becoming the "police of the forum", and saying "post like these are suited for other forum", if only, you knew how rude the OP (Joe) was to me in his Ebay messages after I denied giving him name of my source, you would of undrestand my post better. Anyway Herschel, wasn't it you who texted me last year inviting me to join this forum, now bashing me? Wasn't you who received info on Pon's from me when you started collecting two years ago? And now you bash me? It's ok.

      I have been growing LSU Red since 2011. Never sold a single cutting it plant of it. Shared it's cuttings with few of senior members, but didn't charge a penny, until this Fall when I put few of its cuttings on eBay. Bass has been selling its cuttings and small plants on eBay for the past couple of years, before I started selling this fall. I wonder if the OP (Joe) send him so many messages about who was Bass's source? I wonder if OP was rude to Bass as well? It really doesn't matter at this time.

      Grew up with fig and been growing figs for the past 10 years. In that time I've met many nice people. Have helped many to build a collection for free. Have sent free trees, cuttings and air layers for free, and everyone have been very polite. Except, the OP (puktzpukz/Joe), his rude and demanding way of his eBay messages. I disabled my PMs and email in F4F for such a rude people but that doesn't stop him, he goes message me via eBay.

      Navid.

        Navid would it be possible for you to ask your original source if they know what the LSU ID is?

        Navid,


        We do try hard to keep negativity off of this forum. I cant speak for Hershell or anyone else for that matter, IMHO I don't think he was trying to bash in any way, just asking that this matter be sorted elsewhere or in privet in his own unique way. We do value as you a member here and I'm sure many that know you value as a friend. In the short time I have been in the hobby I have seen your name appear from time to time and always revered in highest regards do to your kindness and knowledge. I do truly hope that you will continue to be a contributing member here at ourfigs, and you are most welcome here.

        I am going to lock this thread for now, and discuses it with Willsc.
