    LTCM, It is a very good fig. I think Celeste is too. I would add it and not replace. The flavor on mine varies. Desirable qualities of this fig, besides taste are productivity, early fruiting and ability to fruit after freeze back. The fig is everbearing. It will produce MANY figs up until frost.

    Is IC really that good? Good enough that I should think about replacing my celeste with improved celeste? I'm in the Atlanta area, very similar zones.

    Hi Chaz. I read that you like initials for fig names. Ha Ha. So that being said I believe this is the LSU IC that Dan posted about in his Dan's Cajun Fig blog a few years back, when it was accessible. PM me your address. Pruning will probably be in late November or when ever they go dormant.

    I am unsure the size, I think it is larger than Celeste, but I am looking for the one that is supposed to start fruiting early, on an approximate par with RdB and Florea.

    Hi Mike. You don't have to have anything to trade. All you need is a mailing address. If your Turkish 208 is small, let it grow. Looking at your wishlist, I will have a small quantity of one more that you seek. I will send you some of those too. I will cut them after they go dormant, which should be in November.

    Hello pppldj, If there’s any left, I would love to have a couple Improved Celeste and a couple RdB cuttings. I don’t have much to trade but a Turkish 208 That in my frenzy to my addiction to figs, I bought. My zone 5b may be to short here to get figs on them. I’m a newbie,so I might need some advise how to take cuttings off a tree.but your welcome to them. Mike51050

    Ed, I believe that fig that you are looking for is the IC with the amber pulp inside. About twice the size of a regular Celeste. Right?

    Just clarifying as there is a lot of confusion about this fig.

    Nic, I should be able to set aside some cuttings for you too.

    Ed - If you have trouble with the cuttings, let me know. I can set an air-layer for you next spring which is fairly early down here. I don't plan to take cuttings off this tree, but could manage a small AL next year.

    Improved Celeste (DONE)

    Hi Friends,
    I am looking for an Improved Celeste plant. I have a few air layers available to trade, or cuttings later in the fall from a bunch of varieties. If you have an IC to trade (preferred) or can swap cuttings later in the season (acceptable) - please let me know!
