Monrovia's 'Brown Turkey' fig is also called 'California Brown Turkey', 'San Pedro', and 'San Piero'. The skin and flesh colors: Brown; amber. It is highly recommended for California and the Southwest. It has average- to large-sized fruits which have few seeds and are best fresh. Not recommended for drying or canning, this is one of the few figs grown for fresh market. They have a moderately open eye so are prone to souring in humid regions. Small tree is hardy and productive with two crops a year.

What you're looking for is the 'English Brown Turkey'; the alternate names are 'Eastern Brown Turkey', 'Everbearing', or 'Texas Everbearing'. The skin and flesh colors: Brown; strawberry, It is recommended for cool summer regions such as coastal California and the Pacific Northwest. Also recommended for Texas and the Southwest. This tree has average- to large-sized figs. Very productive and attractive tree.
