  • Mislabeled Home Depot Fig

    I bought was was labeled as a Brown Turkey fig at Home Depot, but now that the figs are ripening it does not seem that my tree is that variety. It seems to be a green fig with bright red interior (pretty good taste). Any ideas on what this might be? Kadota, maybe?

    Thanks

      This is what the inside looks like. It is very red and it tastes fruity-strawberry. I do have a Peter's Honey (from One Green World, see photo), but it is still small and the fruit is not yet ripe (so I can't yet compare).

      Listing your location is also helpful. If you are in the areas of California with the wasps, then a lot of the honey figs look very different when caprified. I don't have a Peter's Honey but a Kadota when caprified is not that red.

        Looks similar to White Genoa. I got mine from there.

          I am indeed in SoCal. Happily, this is a good tasting fig.

            I believe this is the White Ischia.

              Looking at Home Depot inventory in the LA area, the only green figs I see are Champagne, Kadota, Tiger and LSU Gold. My guess is Kadota. Peter's Honey remains pale inside, even caprified. You can see it on Gardencrochet's website. Kadotas can be pretty red when caprified.

                I repeat here my previous post on similar unknown yellow fig topic: I suspect, that instead of Brown Turkey they sell one of two most common Turkish figs, Sarilop or Sarizeybek.
                Both of these are smyrnas, but as you are located in SoCal, it doesn't rule out smyrnas.

                    I’m in LA and got this a couple months ago. One of your lower leafs looks like this but I don’t think it’s 100% match

                      This is very possible.

                      His picture of the inside shows a round fig, this picture shows long neck.

                      Not saying this rules it out...but....

                      Whatever it is, it's beautiful and it looks happy and healthy. Hopefully, it'll end up producing yummy fruit.

                        Speak of Home Depot fig, I still have recurring nightmare. No knowing anything about fig, in 2013, I bought a fig tree from Strongville Home Depot for $20. Kept that tree for many years and gave out cuttings to many friends, but it never produced a single fruit year after years. I was wondering why people bother to grow figs.

                        Nice looking tree with some good figs.
