Help ID this Syrian fig I got

MohammadLawatiJuly 3, 2014

Hello guys!
I just had my first fully ripe fig from this tree. Can you ID it if you can?

Here are the leaf patterns I could take of it:

and here is the fruit:

I will have a hard time describing the taste because It is my first fig from the tree and I only ate one half of it. It tastes mildly sweet and has a fruity taste like water melon or a melon something like that but a little sweeter. the skin is unnoticeable it all was like a mush or like a jam (Very soft) with some very tiny seeds which were unnoticeable. weird taste, strange. Very different from store bought figs.
Can you help ID it?

Thanks, tasted another one which tasted sweeter and better. Excellent like honey taste and a hint of fruityness. The taste improves alot if I leave it one extra day until I see a drop of syrup in the eye.

The taste is much better now! So much sweeter like honey and another flavour mixed. Size is improving slowly. These figs are after 1 year in ground now it entered the second year I think. The first figs were not as good as these now.
Still no info on the variety.
