#36 - Fig - LSU Purple #1 & #2

I purchased these 2 Fig plants in 2014. The freeze we had didn't kill them.

LSU Purple fig is a very reliable, prolific producer of early to late delicious figs. One of the best figs to come along for some time. Excellent for containers, producing early figs as soon as growth starts. Very acclimated to the fluctuating weather of the South, does great in Virginia Beach. Zones 7-9. Best to pick a few days after fruit turns black, wrinkles and elongates. Space 10' to 12' circle

#35 - Fig - Kadota #1

I purchased this one Fig plant in 2014.

In zone 7, Kadota is an open bush, ripening most of its figs on last years growth. The fruits are yellow, mediumto large size and delicious, ripening best with full sun and hot temperatures. Also known as Peter's Honey fig. Kadota is a popular fig because as a canned product it can be purchased in super markets in the US. Kadota is excellent fresh and very sweet. It sometimes ripens a few early figs that are extremely large. Space @ 10' circle
