Found on local side street. Home owner can't identify and neither can I. The large figs like the one pictured (62 grams) and very jammy (parts were almost gelatinous) and lightly sweet except the seeds are dry. The small soft ones were drier and astringent (see below lowest pic.) They were tasted by 3 people whose comments were individually Mango, Banana or light plum. Is this a Capri? or Capri like? Multiple figs on each fruiting branch. Please any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Noel BTW The smaller split fig with light tones while soft, is the dry astringent one. We have had intense heat lately which may have effected fruit ripening.

Possibly a persistent Capri fig however let's wait until Francisco chimed in.
