This Unknown Fig was found South of Mansfield in the Lake Spur community. Many cuttings were taken in the Fall of 2014 and distributed to fig growers all over the country in attempts for them to grow and identify the variety since circumstances beyond my control dictated that there was no ripe fig from which to identify! Currently it is known as Unknown Lake Spur.
Unknown Lake Spur mother tree stood approx 12ft tall and as wide as a bush form with only a wooden fence on its East side. The previous owner did not know the variety and sold the property. He reported that it would die back some in a hard winter but come back strong and fruit. I was fortunate to find this fig and obtain cuttings with permission. It was reported the current owner burned the mother tree but I saw it growing back just a few days ago. I have several of this variety growing in my own yard now and am looking forward to knowing the variety.
A couple of video's have been posted on the ULS!
