For sale is the exact LSU Tiger fig plant pictured.  This fig comes from the LSU agricultural breeding program, and, in my opinion, is one of their best-tasting results. It is sometimes referred to as a "giant celeste." The fruit comes out with very faint striping, also giving it a little unique flair.  The fruit tastes great, giving off sweet, sugary, berry-type flavors that are up there in my favorites. This plant has been established in its little pot for several months, enduring our mild Texas winter outdoors. All of our plants are raised outdoors where they can bask in the warm Texas sun, so I can assure you that this plant is tough and acclimated to outdoor conditions.  As with any plant, the general recommendation is to give it a little TLC on arrival, possibly keeping it out of direct sun for a few days, but it is already hardened to outdoor conditions and growing so fast I'm worried it won't fit in the box soon 😂

Your plant will come as-is in the pot featured in the photo.  I have had mixed experiences receiving plants with loose or wrapped soil, so I believe it is worth the extra cost to me to ensure their roots remain undisturbed and they are ready for you to transplant after they arrive.  This plant should continue to do fine in its pot until you start seeing roots creep out of the bottom, but it will naturally grow faster if it can spread into a larger space.  As many others have noted, there is frequent exposure to FMV among the community, and, while I don't see any serious signs of issues with disease in my plants other than some leaf spots from the winter on older leaves, beware of the possibility of mild manifestations which resolve effortlessly.

Unfortunately I cannot ship to Alaska, Hawaii, or internationally. 

Enjoy discounted combined shipping with multiple plants!

If there is something catastrophically wrong when you open your package, please take a photo immediately and reach out to let me know. I will pack my plants with extreme care and ensure that they are firmly secure inside their box. I use UPS because my experience has been that they are more careful and less aggressive with handling packages in general. I will do my best to rectify any issues with your plant.
