I have a Brown Turkey Fig tree that is sprouting from the roots. Will it bear figs, or is it some type of root stock?

A few weeks ago I dropped by a farm supply store to get some seeds. They had a pitiful looking fig tree that the top had died and it was sprouting from the very base of the tree. I felt so sorry for the tree I went back the next day, bought it, then planted it in the chicken yard.

Over the past two weeks to tree has put on maybe 5 - 6 inches of growth.

The big question, is the root stock a fig tree, or something else? I guess I could wait a few months to find out, but wanted to ask before then.

Has anyone had a Brown Turkey Fig come back from the roots? If so, did it bear true to form?
