LSU Purple Fig Overview

The LSU Purple fig tree is a medium size fig with large light green leaves with burgandy red fruit and red pulp. Released in 1991, this red to dark purple fig is one of the most outstanding figs developed by Dr. Ed O'Rourke's 15 year breeding and evaluation program at Louisiana State University. This fig has an excellent taste with a high sugar content. It has a closed eye and resists spoilage. It's great for the deep south and is very reliable and great for use in containers.
Figs grow nicely and will bear fruit when grown in containers where they can be artfully pruned to create a living sculpture to decorate decks or patios. This is convenient for two reasons: cold climate growers can move their figs indoors in the winter and the plants can be removed from the patio when the fruit begins to (over)ripen.
