Italian Honey = Marseilles = Blanche = Lemon Fig
This fig tree is in a container due to no room in the yard. Also, it can be hauled into the garage if the winter days get too cold. I haven't tasted these yet - there MIGHT be one tiny main crop fig starting but the bud is still to small to be sure. This variety (which, like many figs, has many names) was a favorite fig of Thomas Jefferson. This variety is apparently popular in the Northwest, but is also a heritage variety in the south.
