Hello, did someone can help me for identification of this stonish variƩtie found in Cotentin, Normandie, France ?
The meat colour is closed to blood orange!
By the way, this fig is good...

Looks gorgeous, sorry I can't help with the ID though, what kind of flavours does it have?

The taste of this fig is classical, i mean not like "Croisic" whitch is insipid  with a "green" taste just good for jam.

Interesting. I saw the very same fig on another part of Normandie, more eastwards, in the Estuaire of the Seine.
I always wondered what it could be. Someone told me that the Brunswick brebas can have this reddish-purple tone in the "albedo"

May be Gary (figgary) can bring up some help after checking those nice pictures and comparing with his Prusch fig.

I think this is Brown Turkey. The shape of the figs and the leaves match. My Brown Turkey can have the same colours, depending on the moment of ripening and the temperatures during night. If the nights are much cooler than the days, the pulp gets darker.

In the Fall when the main crop ripens nights are often quite cold and then the pulp can be blood red.
