Rafed,

Yes! The leaf structure and sheen definitely looks like your Peter's Honey fig tree. Much moreso than the Kadota.  

 I'm pretty much convinced now about the identity of my mystery tree. It makes me wonder how common of a cultivar the Peter's Honey fig is. 

Thank you so much again.  For someone who says they're not an expert- you sure do have a lot of expertise! ;-)

Rafed,

I will eagerly await your pictures!  You have me looking forward to the next harvest - I can hardly contain my excitement :) 

Thank you all so much for all of your assistance

Rafed,

Thank you kindly for your reply!

To answer your question, no the pot didn't say anything about being from Monrovia.  The plant was bought from Milberger's Nursery in San Antonio Texas and the label was from another Texas based nursery (I don't recall the specific name offhand).

The label had this picture on it, though:

Thank you both for the swift replies :)

I am kind of disappointed to learn that it's not a mission fig tree I bought. 
I will wait to see how the latest crop tastes when it ripens to decide on whether or not I should keep it or uproot it and make it a gift to my mother :-P 

But yeah, the figs sure are gigantic - they're like pears!!

I bought this fig tree (labeled as a Black Mission) from a local nursery in February and was absolutely ecstatic as to how many figs it had already growing on it. 

After the figs started to grow to monstrous size and start to soften a little, I started to get a little worried that they might not be mission figs as they were not darkening much

The question is, for those experienced with growing figs of the mission variety, do these look like black mission figs? Pictures of the figs are below -







Unfortunately, the figs met their demise shortly after these pictures were taken. I believe the culprit might have been some local wildlife :(

What do you think?
