Help identifying variety

Posted by jah92 9b (My Page) on

Hello all,
First post. I am having trouble identifying my fig tree based on photos and descriptions found online. Does anyone recognize this little guy? The fruit when ripe is approx 3.5" x 2.5", 4oz, and extremely sweet with a soft, edible skin. It has a five lobe leaf which can grow to about 10" x10". I purchased the plant from a Persian market in a one gallon pot that said "fig". When I asked the gentleman at the store what kind of fig it was, he said he had no idea. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

From the color, and size, of the fruit, it could be an Atreano. However, the leaves on both my Atreanos are lighter green, compared to my other varieties, and very glossy. At least it's a start to identifying it. Good luck.

Thanks for your help, MrPH.
Looks like you may be correct. Mine tend to be not so pink/red inside. Maybe Atreano Gold? I'll keep researching. I may never know for sure, but that doesn't change the flavor. Man are they tasty.
