Fig, 'LSU Purple'
LSU Purple was released by the LSU AgCenter in 1991. The figs are medium in size and weight. The skin on the fig is glossy, with a reddish to dark purple color. The flesh of the fruit is a light strawberry color when ripe. 'LSU Purple' has a nice pleasant mild flavor and high sugar content with ripe fruit. This fig tree can produce excellent quality fruit in containers the first year and the quality will continue to improve as the tree ages. Once 'LSU Purple' reach year five and older they produce three distinct crops: a light breba crop early spring, a heavy main crop in summer and a fall crop that can last into December.
