I think I gave you the LSU Improved Celeste a few years back. I got my original plant from Just Fruit and Exotics in FL. I agree with your assessment. I also like LSU Gold from the same source.

A number of the LSU introductions have been officially named--Hollier and O'Rourke are a couple of names that come to mind although I'm not sure which, if either correspond with the above.

Looking at the 4 releases from that now defunct breeding program, I'm guessing what I have is LSU Improved Celeste. Naming & trading figs is sometimes like a game of telephone.

LSU Improved are ripening way ahead of hardy chicago, celeste & brown turkey type figs. Looks to be a very good choice for northern container plantings. Anyone know what this release is an improvement of?

Zone 4 WI, pulled the fig trees out of the basement on May 15.
