No other information. Does anyone have an idea what variety this might have been?

Hi Kalkardi

The heaviest fig to date weighs 295 grams (.650 lbs) more than half a pound. It was grown by Lloyd Cole (UK) in Worthing West, Sussex, UK as verified by Guinness Book of records on Aug 28, 2015. The fig is of the 'Brown Turkey' variety. So, it's possible that your stepdad grew or saw the huge figs. I repeat The biggest fig fruit variety so far that has been officially recognized is the fig BROWN TURKEY variety as per Guinness Book Of Records.
