Here in the South we have a lot of great tasting figs. One of the main resources would be LSU and their breeding program. The second main resource would be immigrants  that moved here and brought in their heirloom figs. One example would be the Becnel's family here in Louisiana that brought in the Smith Fig. The Smith Fig is one of the top rated figs in taste and productivity as compared to the Black Madeira and grows here in the south for 100 years. Please share your own area fig histories, as we're interested in hearing about your heirloom figs that have been in your family and the story behind it.

This is a great topic.  I would love to hear stories from members who have heirloom figs.  Sometimes the older varieties are better in terms of hardiness.
