          Had to bring this thread back to life as I would love both of your opinions.

          I've grown some cuttings which clearly were not IC's. I recently got what was said to be a true IC and just got my first fig. A little in the smaller side of size, almost like a Celeste but the leaf pattern is correct.

          I want to see what you guys Cliff and Rafaelissimmo think about it.

          I am truly hoping this is correct and I sort of believe it may be. Maybe it just needs more time? I know there is a lot written out there and how to tell what a particular cultural (O'Rourke, Celeste and IC) is supposed to look like. But I am hesitant to 100% accept my thoughts without opinions.

          I am also growing Celeste but the figs are green right now so this IC seems to be very early right now.

            That seems probable as an IC. It would be helpful to compare dominant leaves, but my tree is bare and fast asleep. Check the Just Fruits & Exotics website, maybe they show a leaf. That’s where I got mine

            Thank you Rafael. Mine certainly does not look like that of Just Fruits & Exotics . https://justfruitsandexotics.com/pro...este-fig-tree/
            It's missing that very unique long neck. My trees dominant leaves at this moment are single lobed.

            This is frustrating to me...lol

          Hope it's the right one, Rigo. It's on the WL.
