95 % of me says that it is a brown turkey. It is quite delicious...Try a small ripe one, you will love it. It tastes like candy!

Also mauriziop, that bush could pass for one of mine. It is thriving and it really does look like a Brown Turkey. I don't know if is an English BT or a California but I tell you-it is quite delicious. I will upload pics of mine later this evening or tomorrow evening.

HC (a Mt. Etna type fig) was what first came to my mind (but I could be wrong)....

I cannot tell if the eye of the fig is pink/red in the above pictures? The eyes appear to be green in the first pic. If the eye of the supposed HC are green by the time they are the size of the figs in your first pic, then that is not a HC.
