I had some lack of labeling and then misidentification going on with my potted figs this year.  I had this one figured as a Conadria in the spring, but this is what it produced this year, and does not look at all like the Conadria that I air layered off of:

Other figs that I have in my collection (most of which have been relabeled a few times, thought I had most of them correct):  Stella, Desert King, Latarulla, Black Spanish, Vern's Brown Turkey, Atreano, Peter's Honey, Negronne.    There's also a Texas Everbearing at a nursery I frequent.  Didn't think I bought it, but maybe I did, though this doesn't seem as dark as pictures I've seen online of the TE.  I'm so confused, this couldn't possibly be a Conadria could it?  Any help is appreciated!  Lesson learned about appropriately labeling my baby figs....

Amanda,

That looks very much like my Vern's BT with flesh, skin and leaves as well. I will see if I have a pic handy. Definitely not conadria, though.

Thank you, that is interesting.  It would kind of make sense because I think I air layered my VBT last year, and I should have kept the original and the layer.  But I can't figure out which of those two plants might have been the original, and both of the trunks look pretty thick at the base, more so than I would have imagined for something air layered last year (with a milk jug, though).  Also the figs on the other tree don't look the same, and certainly don't taste the same.  Could that be because the root system on one is newer?  Here's what my other Vern's looks like, though I don't have a ripe one to cut open at the moment.  It's got lots of figs on it, all small and not overly flavorful or sweet:

Dang, I thought this one was negronne, and I don't think I should have 2 negronnes.
