JD and Steve, I have always been one who tries to bring my work to completion - and the unfinished work of others.  I applaud your desire and determination to continue hybridizing figs for our good Ole, USA.  Great things are going to happen!

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.
