A couple of years back I gave young "Oregon Gold" fig trees to a few board members. The mother tree had been tested and found to not match other known fig trees. That fig variety was subsequently renamed "Pacific Queen." It even made it into some nurseries I believe.
Since all of this it has been determined that the mother tree (and the baby trees I gave away) are probably Brunswick. Not nearly as exciting or interesting.
My apologies to those who got the trees from me. Errors were made and passed on - in good faith, but errors nonetheless.
And if anybody wants a Brunswick fig tree, I will not be planting mine out. It is currently in a 7 gallon pot.

I have one, thank you. And thank you even more for coming back and telling us what you've learned.
Mine is still in a crowded nursery bed in my vegetable garden. I got my first, main crop I think, fig off of it last fall and wasn't impressed, but its probably the brebas I should be judging. I don't have a great place to put it, that's why its still where its at.
