Auction for the Celeste fig tree picture. It is a cutting started in 2020 in a 1 gallon pot. This Celeste has been grown by my family since 1920 in SW Louisiana. I prefer the flavor of my Celeste to an Improved Celeste and O'Rourke which I also grow. I started my first cutting from the original tree over 30 years ago and have produced and sold hundreds of Celeste trees in my area. It is a heavy producer year after year of excellent quality figs. Licensed and inspected nursery. Member name Wisner on Ourfigs. Priority shipping to Continental US only. From an LSU field day I attended:
A widely planted, sweet, light brown to violet-brown very cold hardy fig. This is the most popular cultivar in Louisiana and a very dependable producer of high quality, small to medium sized figs even in unfavorable weather due to its small, tightly closed eye. The very sweet flesh has a rich, honey like flavor and is reddish amber in color. Fruit pyriform with tapering neck.
Oregon and Washington state addresses pay $5 extra shipping.
