A friend recently moved into a house in NJ and has 2 fig plants.  Someone said the purple was a celeste but that's just a rumor.  Here's photos and if anyone can ID the figs she'd appreciate it.




Green fig





Purple figs









The "Celeste" label was to differentiate the green from the purple, she's not sure it's a celeste.  I told her to let some green figs ripen more and get new pictures but that'll take a while.  Any thoughts let me know.  Thanks.

The one on the left is classic Celeste.  The one on the right, I was thinking LSU Gold, but that should have 5 lobes instead of 3.  So, with 3 lobes, I thought Peter's honey, but the fruit is too squat. 

I suck with light figs (don't like em), someone else will need to help on that.

OK, thanks.  Any guesses on the green one?

I agree with the Celeste [it is so].
As for the green one; Italian Honey (Lattarula) first came to my mind.

Note the fruit in the back of the plate on Marius' post here:  http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox.com/post/todays-harvest-823-5982865

That's Latarulla... and his are ripe now also, same shape/size as yours.  Looks like Gorgi may have it right.
