                Looks an AWFUL lot like my LSU purple, but mine doesn't crack like that, nor does it have an open center.

                Thus...Black Mission then? Nice n simple, so probably not, but worth a shot.

                            He was out watering figs and Japanese maples. Can you Floridians send a little water north please? Good job Tony.

                                Doh, all my initial guess are already taken. I'll go with Valle Negra.

                                  Ok, everyone stop guessing. It's a Fracazzano Nero.
                                  Fracazzano or Ficazzana means breba in Italian dialect. This is not a breba but still a very large fig.

                                    Frank, I would have to say that it was just a lucky guess. Does that mean I get the title of "Fig Connoisseur" for an hour? Woo hoo, Boo yah!

                                      I was going to guess Mission - an under-rated fig.

                                          Lil fig resumes coloring in the "Know Your Fig Coloring Book" while wearing fig shape dunces cap. Hmmm purple crayon smells like a fig.
