I've been told that synonyms are not necessarily always correct.

My Brogiotto Neros get stripes when young, but they disappear as they grow.

I totally agree!

So many assumptions made from someone seeing a similar leaf or a similar fig shape. 
Most figs produce many varying leaf & fig shapes and yes some look similar.
 
Many time when you grow them side by side after a few years you can finally see the differences in plant health & vigour, fig production, leaf patterns & dominant leaves ...  Clear to see that some are different albeit not by much. 

i.e. Bourjasotte Noir & Brogiotto Nero are not the same they only share the same fig shape & colour.

Having said that;
who knows how many times a fig has been mis-named & passed on with the assumed name which was then passed on.   Then other people find themselves comparing 2 mis-named figs thinking it is a different cultivar. 

Even in Condit's original writing he describes many different figs called by same names or same fig called by many different names,

Point is enjoy your figs that grow and produce well for you and taste hoe you like and don't lose sleep pondering what ifs.

Well said, Pino.... I very much like the sentiment to love them for what they are and not for what they are called...

It almost looks like a noire de barbentane.

While I agree knowing the name isn't as important when you are growing and eating it but it sure does make it a lot easier to acquire the variety that you want when the trees are properly identified and named.
