It is a Smyrna but if you live in the wasp land, this fig is a must.
Very vigorous and productive, tastes like a cherry with strawberry.

Igor,
Thank you for sharing photos of your beautiful figs.
Are your figs being caprified by the wasp in your area?

Leon,

Yes, all the figs are caprified. It is a natural process , I do not do anything to encourage this

Thanks. Shame it makes Big beautiful leaves. Was hoping overtime it would produce
