nhardy seems like most figs are fast growers once established. I'm sure your niece will enjoy this variety. Most of my figs are in pots and I would suggest your niece keep hers potted for first season a least to protect from frost and to establish a good root mass before going in ground. Wish her all the best
Hi Nelson compared to most, my collection is small and still in it's infancy nothing more than 2 yrs old. With that said the 6 LSUG figs I picked so far has been during a rain spell the past 5 days (3 inches)
Cons= they tend to be a little watery but better in that respect compared to last year. Also not much of a seed crunch compared to other varieties which may or may not appeal to some.
Pros= Nice size, thin skin, not prone to splitting and souring, sweet, good flavor and productive. MY Verdict 2 thumbs up and is a keeper for me
Hope you and family are well and give that little one a big kiss from Mickey in FL.
