Hi JD. Great thread, and I am delighted that your LSU is doing so well.
One thing I have learned about figs is that they can be variable. Take a look at the leaves for example: Different shape leaves on the same plant. There also seems to be some variation in the fruit depending on weather conditions, soil conditions, etc.
As a general rule though, our LSU Purples have been consistently green up until the end stages, but there may be a purple tinged one here or there that I didn't notice.
But your figs also look a darker, richer shade, and they are from our mother plant! So clearly there is variation caused by local conditions.
Hope you will get a great crop this year also.
This much is clear though: Atleast in the South the LSU Purple is a winner.
