  • My Lsu Purple Tree

    Hi everyone...
    I went outside today and noticed that my lsu purple tree is sprouting brebas. this is quite early for my area. all my other fig trees are still dormant. I am hoping we don't get a late frost. This tree survived this winter with no die back at all. by the way all my fig trees are in ground in Climax, NC.

      Maybe you could get something ready to lay over it if the weather gets down cool and your worried about frost. I think some people use bed sheets..

        I read your post and had to check my LSU Purple. It has one breba on it. This will be its first year in the ground. Am looking forward to three crops of "sweet caramel sugar taste with a hint of acidity". The last fig I tasted in the Fall was almost there. Perhaps this will be the year its mature enough to produce its better figs.

            It's a good feeling to find new figlets on our trees. I check mine every day now. We all need more fig trees. hahaha!

            My potted LSU Purple has brebas too as of a few days ago, other varieties as well. This is 3 weeks ahead of last year for brebas.

            In-ground LSU Purple has a green swelling tip on its winter mulch-protected low limb. That's more than a month ahead of last year.

            In ground mulch-protected bushes are budding out: Mongibello, Atreano, RDB. This is 5-6 weeks ahead of last year.

            Chives and comfrey are 3 inches out of the ground. Daffodils have bloomed.

            There is a potential for frost next weekend but looks manageable either by covering or by its minimal duration.
