A new item added to an existing collection. In the case of fig varieties, it is the addition of a specific sample. A fig variety name may be associated with the accession, but accessions are usually tracked through a unique identifier that keeps specific samples separate from others which may have the same name. For example, the NPGS has the specific identifier DFIC 63 for a submission of the Violette de Bordeaux variety.


Though, the fig, itself, is not technically a fruit, but a casing (the syconium or receptacle) that encloses dozens or hundreds of tiny fruits called "pips", drupes, or most properly, achenes.
