The more that I eat this fig the better I like it every year it just gets bigger and better. It's very heavy producer I mean the tree is just simply loaded down and to many figs on it even for the birds. They are really nice size fig  with a sweet honey taste a lot of times that has a light Berry taste and then they can get quite Jammy but  this year being where my locations is with all the rain they're lacking a bit.

I heard it was the same as English Brown Turkey. Do you think it is a different fig?
