LSU Improved Celeste
Rigo007 From Zone 10
Rating For: LSU Improved Celeste

Excellent variety to add, specially for the South, with hot and humid climates. Early season (as you can see from my pictures) they look red and the eye, pretty much closed. Mid-season, skin color is more of a caramel color with appealing ribbing showing thru but eye is a little open then. Handles rain pretty well, considering that in South Florida, rains are brutal. It is a sugar fig that I highly recommend.

CaricaChris From Zone 7
Rating For: Bonavita

Has done well for me in NYC. Extremely productive, with 1 fig at every node, sometimes 2. Handles rain quite well, but can occasional split. Wide main crop ripening window, starting late August and continuing into November without any sort of headstart. Flavor is good, not terribly complex, but very sweet with hints of melon and berry.
