Description

All my figs are container grown in Wisconsin.  Cuttings were taken in late November after trees had gone dormant and have been stored in a fridge at 37-40 degrees. You are bidding on 2 dormant, unrooted cuttings of LSU CELESTE IMPROVED. LSU CELESTE IMPROVED will ripen container grown figs in Wisconsin without a greenhouse and is the earliest ripening fig in my collection. A great choice for folks with very short summers.

from justfruitsandexotics.com:

"Louisiana State University took the Celeste fig variety, which is known for it’s sweet flavor and improved the yield and fruit size. LSU Improved Celeste has light brown to violet skin, and caramel pink flesh. One of the best varieties for drying and preserves. Partially closed eye."

*********************************

I’ve been growing and trialing figs in southwestern Wisconsin for 30 years. My focus was on container figs which will ripen in Wisconsin without a greenhouse, but now that I have an unheated hoophouse & I’ve been putting many varieties in the ground.

I am sacredgroveorganics on eBay and run a Facebook group called NORTHERN FIG GROWERS which has several thousand members.  I also sell cuttings of currants, grapes, elderberries, willows, kiwis and scionwood of pears and mulberries.
