Ficus carica ‘Champagne’
Champagne is one of the new releases from the Louisiana State University agricultural program. It is a cross between ‘Celeste’ and C1 which is a Capri fig from California. It has moderate to small fruit with yellow to green skin and golden flesh. Champagne has a slightly rounded end that tapers towards the stem and a short neck.

Figs can be grown in sandy as well as clay soils. Self-fertile. Height to 20 feet. Hardy in zones 8-10 but can be grown as a container plant. Plants are shipped in 1 gallon containers.
