    This one was found in the beautiful mountaintop village of Saignon. After a long drive we hit a perfect trifecta of an open parking space, a bathroom to the right and this tree to the left. We all agreed that the taste of this fig was exceptional.
    Anyone hazard a guess as to what it could be?

            I think it is called "Joyce Needs Me" You are so lucky. You have pocket knife and plastic bag and paper towel. Live could not get any better. Joyce

              What an awesome fig. Thanks for sharing Frank. I'm pretty sure it's a "Brune de Dinde"! Especially with that void in the center and all that juice oozing out. Yumm!

                    Good looking fig Frank. I have to assume it is a breba as it is too soon for main crop.

                      Frank, it looks like a Turkish "sari lop." I've never eaten one, but they always look like a great fig. I would love to have one.
