I found this in San Diego, owner tells me its sweet and when ripe it's almost dark burgundy color, I thought it was a mission but are mission figs red inside this early ?

Thanks for your reply, I picked the one you see in the middle pictures. I will cut it open tonight and post more pictures. I think they are 2-4 weeks away from ripen .

Here are some close up of the fruit and yes it has hollow center, they are defiantly not ripe yet. The owner said the are pretty dark red inside and out and very sweet. I did get three cutting which I will store in fridge for now as I got three more side branches that are rooted I have potted and watered them hopefully they will survive.

Looks a lot like my Osborne Prolific: Distinctive dark stripes when getting ripe then dark purple in about 2-wks.
No hollow interior, though!?!
