Martin, yes the plant mostly has the three lobed leaf, though it does produce another more complex, deeply lobed leaf. A sucker plant at my parents place has only produced this leaf form. I'll try to get a photo of it. Perhaps our family figs are related.
Tim, this is a fantastic forum to learn and share ideas. I've been lurking for a while, and I've done many searches on topics that crossed my mind.
As far as the flavor of the Meade fig, it's my favorite of the 10 or so I have tried. In early maturity, it is a little more acid, peachy with raspberry notes. At full maturity, it is syrupy in the middle with a richly flavored strawberry jam taste. The skin is very tender and has a great texture, and is sweet too. It will often produce a clear sweet resin in the eye, and I have never found ants in the figs, except those that have started eating from the side, and those never make it too far and can be brushed away. The plant is very productive and starts producing usually in late July. This year it started later, after the first week of August. It is still producing some figs, but I think the best ones were in the heat of the summer.
