South Texas Fig ID?

gothamgardener(7)July 18, 2014

This tree (or countless clones thereof) have been in the family for several generations and I be grateful for any of your sage wisdom pointing me toward some ballpark idea of what it might be. I know absolute ID is essentially impossible but any suggestions or insight would be helpful. Thanks!!

I'd say it is probably a Celeste. The leaves look like my Celeste that goes back around 100 years in my family.

Thanks so much. I had always been told it was most likely a Celeste and they certainly seem to be prominent throughout those ancient Louisiana gardens. I really appreciate the insight :)
