my grandfather, he calls it a brown turkey but it looks nothing like the brown turkey I purchased or the pics I've seen of brown turkey. a cutting was given to him in the 80's from an old lady that called it a turkey fig so he called it brown turkey. any help would be great. it makes huge figs vs my other BT are about half that size.

they taste so sweet and not pungent like some of my other figs I'd say the taste rivals black mission in taste but larger and sweeter. the skin is a little thick but still sweet.It has an open eye and we have lost a few to ants this year.
