Description

A very dependable, superb clone, medium to large fig. Sweet and excellent flavor.  In the trade, but not an official release from the LSU program. (May be the same as Guilbeau.)  Good growth in 2002.  Excellent flavored, very sweet, light green figs ripen even in cool weather. This LSU release is very dependable, producing medium-large fruit.

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.
