Louisiana Backyard Scientists and Research / Re: Bragging rights
« on: October 17, 2018, 08:12:52 AM »
Fig research and breeding in the United States dates back into the 50s this is when Louisiana State University started their research and through the years they became top research facility to promote and come up with the most new hybrids of figs. Due to cutbacks to the University and being Limited fourth going in their projects they fell behind and put on hold losing their position for being the top university of new hybrids of figs.              We are proud to say now that Louisiana now is again the top state for producing new hybrids. This has involved a lot of time money and dedication with a lot of failures. To make such a claim The new hybrid has to be supported  by documentation on your study and your new hybrid needs to be DNA fingerprinted and registered. This is why research is so hush-hush because the cost it takes to do this. We still have LSU that has a couple things on the back burner and a few Southern States in promoting new hybrids along with our studies we have a small group me Steve and a couple other people we're looking forward to the next few years and giving back to the Fig community.

Bill I'm not trying to tease you but I want to post a few more pics of this fig I pick them this morning it is really in a class of its own nothing really to compare it to very flavorful very sweet doesn't really want to split in heavy rain a really good all-around variety.

Let me make a point this variety was found here in Louisiana so I'm not going to let this be similar to another fig or have people impose that it could be the same. Dan found this and held it pretty tight so there were only about three people that had this then came four. So the people that bought cuttings and all this year last year and going in this year if they were able  to get figs they were very young very young trees that haven't matured yet so they're not going to experience the real flavor that this fig has. So if they like this fig that much being immature tree just think what they're going to do whenever tree matures they'll go crazy. And I'm going to make a little note if it wasn't for different leaves and if all the figs taste alike what will be the sense in these people collecting these things and paying all this big money for a new variety ? ? Just food for thought

In my honest opinion I think a lot of it depends on where you're located at and you're growing season and the substrate they're planted in. But I believe if you took five figs each of these varieties put one on a plate and blindfolded 5 people and have them taste them I don't believe that four out of five could pick the right Fig naturally the figs should have to be dry down to the same consistency for the texture and growing conditions.

Yes mr. Steve I'm going to put an air layer on this and try to keep it from going dormant this year by putting it in the greenhouse and next year I'm going to put it in a growing container and grow in the shade to see if anything else will show signs of variegated maybe the leaves or maybe all the figs on that Branch with different colors we don't know yet.

Congratulations to BluesHarp she won the Louisiana lightning fig on our first giveaway. It's time now to register for the Doctor Clark we're trying to get a few more trees out to the membership before the weather turns. All you need to do is PM me a number 1 through 600 and include the state or country you're in otherwise your number will be rejected and we really don't want to do this. After we get the tree giveaways completed for the year we'll start on some cuttings.

The BB- 10 has really surprised me this year with all the rain we've gotten here last month and I'm talkin like monsoons. This one never split and the flavor and The Taste was still awesome not watered down at all this particular fig I could have left on the tree for maybe 2 more days. This is the Black Beauty 10
