    Tree hardy, and an abundant bearer; well adapted for pots."

      I have that fig. However, years ago, I had a fig variety from a nurseryman on the West coast (Jerry Black?) that was labeled Early Violet, but was NOT early or violet. It was great, however, It looked just about exactly like Celeste, but was amber inside and seedless or nearly so. Fig Malaysia on the internet seems to have the same fig. Any idea what other name it might have and where to get the fig variety? Thx.
