Yep, they look like they are hard to take seriously. However, it is true that, when I was looking for blueberry varieties no one else had (too late in season), they listed them. Now I am glad I found other sources.

Thanks for the warnings--and the welcome!

Thanks for the advice. So, you don't seem worried about crowding 2 trees together if they "grow up together!"

Is there a problem if one tree I want to plant together is a bare twig 2 feet tall and the other is a 3 foot tall tree with leaves & tiny figs (I guess these are brebas)?

Also, there's the other question about: should I snip or break off all those brebas to help the tree get established?

I also don't see "LSU Gold" in the (fascinating) article about where a lot of the other LSU trees came from. Actually, I did do a search on LSU Gold & found that article before posting this, but I enjoyed reading it again. My conclusion is that we don't know about the LSU Gold issue or that it's not set in stone. Thanks for the ideas & reference, tho'.

You folks are great--I would never have thought of planting them together.

That's a bright, cheerful picture--until I envision all the work it took to move those pots!

I could use a little advice. I live in Mississippi and am planting some edible landscaping for the first time. I only have room for 2 fig trees in the plan. I have already bought a Brown Turkey. The local nursery has Celeste (which, besides the Brown Turkey, is the usual variety everyone seems to recommend for our area) as well as some LSU Gold. Even the Ag Extension Agent can't tell me much about LSU Gold.

I will need to prune these trees occasionally, as the spot for them is not that big. I have heard that, if I choose to plant the Celeste and then prune it, I'll only get a crop every 2 years as the figs form on new wood. Is LSU Gold the same, or is it more like the Brown Turkey that forms figs on the old stock & keeps producing after pruning?

Thanks in advance for any advice--the tree may get purchased & planted tomorrow!!
