My LSU Gold has twins.

I was looking at my LSU Gold and I saw twin figlets growing from the same node.

A genetic characteristic of ficus palmate, I believe.

Are some varieties of ficus carica more prone to twin figlets than others? And would it dilute the flavor having to support the growth of two figs at the same node? Would you pinch off the weaker figlet?
