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.
