I have grown Smith for several years, and it is a very good producing tree. My source for my Smith is from Roy Young Nursery in Abbeville, La. Mr. Young sold fig trees at his nursery that he produced off his own fig orchard. Description of Smith from a LSU Field Day I attended:
A superior, heirloom variety that has been in the Becnel family of Plaquemines Parish for over 100 years. It is a big, flattened, yellow fig with brown shading. The color of the flesh is deep red and it has a drop of honey at the eye. The quality of this exceptionally sweet fig is outstanding. The fruit ripens 5-7 days after Celeste.
