LSU Gold Fig
The tree produces so much fruit each year, but the fruit always splits. We live in Louisiana, have many fig trees, and this is the only one to have split figs.

Fig splitting is usually the result of sudden changes in pressure brought on by cool temperatures, high humidity, or excessive moisture as the fruit matures. It may also result from excessive pollination and the growth of too many developing seeds. However, this is not considered a major problem.
