All my figs are container grown in Wisconsin. Cuttings were taken in  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 Champagne'.

‘Champagne’ is a selection from a group of seedlings derived from a cross of 'Celeste' x 'C1’ (a Capri fig from California). The cross was made in 1955 and the selection made by Ed O'Rourke in 1959 and tested as L55-13-22.

‘Champagne’ produces good quality, 30-40mm diameter, moderate size (23 gms) yellow fruit. The fruit of ‘Champagne’ (Figure 3) have a slightly round distal end and tapers slightly toward the stem end with a short neck. The fruit has a partially closed eye (ostiole) on mature fruit. Internal color is tan to caramel color when soft ripe. 


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 run a Facebook group called NORTHERN FIG GROWERS which has 10K+ members.  I also sell cuttings of currants, grapes, elderberries, willows, kiwis and scionwood of pears and mulberries.
