In a previous post trying to get a positive ID of two Figs, I posted this one but got no answers so reposting it asking the question Is this California Brown Turkey?  Replies from folks who grow California Brown Turkey (aka San Piero) are appreciated.  It's on a 12" x 12" stone tile and is of the Breba crop, weighing 145 grams.  It was given to me as a "Brown Turkey".

Definitely the fig having the yellow neck and the void. Looks to be correct. The leaf is only one of many probably on the tree

Brian,

Thanks for the confirmation.  It certainly isn't a "Brown Turkey" (aka Eastern/English Brown Turkey).  The confusion caused by the use of the name "Brown Turkey" is so prevalent that my estimate is 90%+ of all "Brown Turkey" Figs sold at Nurseries in Western Washington simply aren't, but other varieties mismarked!

I read on the forum that all brown turkeys had a red eye.

Interesting link (the fig part)
