The fig that we commonly eat, in pudding and by itself, is Ficus carica, a different species.
Kevin, the correct name for tiger bark fig (which this appears to be) is Ficus microcarpa 'Kinmen.' There is only one true specimen of Ficus retusa in cultivation in the world, in Indonesia. All the rest are Ficus microcarpa.
