Planning to install this tree yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for do it yourself installations. These small sizes do not require any offloading equipment!
Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

LSU Purple Fig is a deciduous fruiting tree that produces two crops a year and is salt-tolerant enough to be grown on the coast.  It has an interesting winter silhouette and lobed palmate mid-green leaves.  The sweet-smelling fruits are produced in spring and summer and ripen to a dark reddish-purple with pink flesh.  Highly adaptable, but provides the best fruit in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought tolerant once established.
