Gene's Vashon - Main Crop

Just picked this the other day. It's a Gene's Vashon main crop fig.  The look of it is much shorter and squat compared to the breba crop.

Alot of folks say that this is a Brunswick but in my opinion it is clearly not. It doesn't have splitting or souring problems and the leaf structure is rounder vs pointy compared to the Brunswick. In my research the closest thing that I was able to find was an English Brown turkey.

The eye is closed and tight.

The color is a light green with brown hues.
Sorry about the blurry photo. But this one was not fully ripe yet, however the flavor was still very sweet and figgy. Not jammy like some other figs.
