          Ripe strawberry flavor would be the closest I can think of

          It’s a strawberry flavor type fig. The more it hangs on a tree, the juicier it becomes. They ripen very fast, not like a Black Madeira

        Forgot.. what weight? Figs are similar to Dalmatian (old synonyms are White Turkish, Fico Pionoto, Weisse Dama, Armud figs), but Dalmatian almost all figs with obvious asymmetry.

            If Jon joined this forum, I haven’t seen his posts, maybe he just reads it, I do not know. You can still access the figs4fun forum in a Google archive

              While I envy you having the fig wasp, I'm sorry you have the other two as well...

            JLB A green fig from Greece that does reasonably well in hot, humid and rainy FL is Harry’s Crete. It is also a great tasting fig.
