growing LSU Gold fig-'fantastic'
It's very odd I don't find much written on this fig. I'm a bit surprised because I donÂt understand why!!! I have two of them growing in pots. One is three years old the other was started from a cutting last December from my older tree. This variety is OUTSTANDING. Large Light green figs - easy to grow and fast growing. It's also has very large leaves.
I store mine tied up after two frosts have hit them and the leaves have dropped then covered with sleeping blankets that I purchased at garage sales for a buck or two in my unheated garage. It's gets rather cold in there living in northeast PA. Out of the five different verities have growing in tubs this is by far the best.
Like I said this plant is fantastic. The older one is full of figs even a few briba's.
The younger one is sporting three large figs not ripe as yet also. Last year the older tree was loaded and they where delicious but I have to wait until August living where I do until any of my figs start ripening.
If any of you people grow the LSU Gold I would like to hear your results or thoughts.
