  • Any info on these varieties, supposedly originated from LSU ??

    Heard the following are LSU varieries like LSU #5, DC series, Buddy Lee ??. I now for sure the DC(aka Dead Cat) is from LSU but no
    other info on taste and other info.

    I don't recall hearing those names mentioned while at LSU/Burden last summer. That doesnt mean
    that they aren't LSU though. Maybe some of the others that attended can jump in.

        Brian, I should have known you would have the answer. Do you remember any discussion about those last summer at the Burden function?

        BTW, my Hollier is doing very well this spring. Thanks for the replacement cuttings. I sure was disappointed when I lost my large tree
        during the previous winter that I got from Mr. James Robin. Do you know the status of him? I know he became ill after he lost his wife.

        Hello Mike.........Dr.Johnson first mentioned the DC figs at the 2013 LSU fig field day ,he said that were propagated at LSU , were very promising fig varieties and worth saving from being cut down to make room for a parking lot at LSU.Dr Johnson instructed his students to take cuttings from the trees, and start them in the greenhouse,they enter the greenhouse and saw a dead cat ,so thats how the name was arrived.All of the DC figs were planted at Burdun Center til 2015.......then they were transplanted to another location ..

          I know that this has come around and gone around, yet dare I ask.

          Is there a definitive list of LSU figs? And could someone post it?

            An up to date list would be helpful for sure. I am up to 13 LSUs and looking a good Hollier to trade for a Scott's Yellow. More info on LSU Red would be much appreciated, too.

              Is it just me, or does Dead Cat not sound too appealing?

                Once upon a time, one year ago this month, an informal attempt was made to compile a list here of LSU figs. This will no doubt remain an ongoing community effort: http://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-ho...-fig-cultivars. Would be nice if LSU has commissioned or would commission a study to create a formal list.

                This list below includes a lot of LSU cultivars, though don't know to what extent it is over or under inclusive:

                Buddy Lee
                Champagne
                DC 1, 2, 6, 7 (aka LSU #1, LSU #2 ... )
                Golden Celeste? (multiple strains?)
                Hollier
                Improved Celeste (multiple strains?)
                Jack Lily
                O'Rourke
                Scott's Yellow (sometimes re-named "Brandy" post-LSU?)
                St Gabriel
                Thibodaux
                LSU #5
                LSU #156
                LSU Black / Scott's Black
                LSU Brown
                LSU Everbearing
                LSU Gold (aka Cajun Honey?)
                LSU Late Black
                LSU Purple (multiple strains?)
                LSU Red
                LSU Tiger (originally Giant Celeste, not Mega Celeste)
                LSU White Honey

                  Now we have LSU Strawberry and somewhere I picked
                  it up that LSU Brown is one of the others. I also heard Buddy Lee is from a different but related source all it’s own. Set me straight LSUers.

                      I think I have that info somewhere. But as I remember it he was either a friend/colleague or Dr O'Rourke that worked at LSU, or he was a volunteer that spent all his vacations helping out at the LSU breeding program. Scott was his last name. If I find my info, like his full name, I will post it.

                    Is LSU Brown and LSU Thibodeaux the same fig? Any info on LSU Late Black. My Late Black is small. I am seeking a LSU Brown if it is unique from the other LSUs.

                      I remember reading somewhere that Thibodeaux and black triana were the same? Could be mistaken but I thought it was posted quite a while back.

                      Brian thank you for reminding me about Late Black and Thibodeaux. How about LSU Brown?

                        LSU Black vs Scott’s Black.
                        Is there a difference? I have Scott’s Black and was really impressed with the flavor from the few fruits off a first year tree.
