    My figs do that a lot. It has something to do with radiation or chemical levels.

        A few here and there. And the discontinuity can be in different places.

          I have a Peter's Honey that does that sometimes. I posted a photo on one of the other fig forums.

            I can relate to your Peter's Honey, Mike. My PH was putting double clusters on almost every other node. They all dropped last season. Hoping to see something this year.

              On this plant every fig is like that. It has a name but I first want to see if anyone recognizes it so I know it is correct.

                  I wish Gina. Unfortunately I don't have that little bird, mine is a wren. Or that fig.

                    I'm still not convinced 'that fig' as a distinct variety actually exists. I think that morphological form is something that can appear here and there in the world of figs. And that it's not necessarily manifest in all figs on a tree that exhibits that trait. If you look at the drawing, half the figs have it, the other half don't. I just don't think the story is complete. That's just my botanical instincts.

                        I believe it was Gene Hosey who many years ago identified this as a swollen peduncle on the fig.

                          I think Bass posted a picture of a variety he has that does that.
