I gathered few cuttings locally who has Alma, LSU Purple, Celeste and some other unknown.  When I chopped into small pieces - I lost track of few cuttings and didn't want to throw them away.  So, anyway I put them in the ground and one made it.  Now - I am confused if this one is Alma or NOT.  I really want an Alma.  

I know it is difficult (if not impossible) to identify a Fig by it's leaf.  But - I know there are knowledgeable people in the forum can share their thoughts.  Thank you.

Looks like mvsb. Alma has a three lobe leaf shaped like a spade.

My Alma is deceased but even as a young leafed out rooted cuttings the leaves looked nothing like that,Alma had distinctive leaf as described above,yours also had a distinctive leaf but distinctively different to Alma.It is very difficult to ID at this age, maybe when you have fruit all will become clear

The leaves do look more like a chicago hardy type fig. I saw some brebas on my "Alma" today. Not sure if Alma's push out brebas.

looks like immature celeste leaves that should eventually change to mostly 3 lobes.
