    LSU Hollier
    aka Hollier

    A superb cultivar of fine, rich flavor from the hybridizing efforts of Dr. Ed O'Rouke of Louisiana State University. It is a very dependable performer with medium sized to large, sweet figs that have an excellent, sweet flavor. This one came out first in a five year taste test. Up to 2 inches in diameter with greenish yellow skin and amber pulp tinged strawberry. Fruit oblate-spheroid. The leaf has a cordate base and 5 latate lobes. Excellent for the Deep South but also does well in colder climates. (2)

    I have noticed the Hollier, like many honey and sugar figs, will be redder inside earlier and later in the year. I believe that this is due to the cooler temperatures at night (this is in southern Texas). You can see this in the pictures. The first interior picture (pic 3) was in early spring, while the last picture was in full summer.
