    Conadria [adriatic hybrid / verdone hybrid] - A choice, large, light greenish yellow to white fig with a thin skin. This pyriform fig has an excellent, rich, sweet flavor with a rose pink flesh that is very good fresh or dried. The eye is small and very tight which keeps it from spoiling during wet weather. The tree is very productive and bears twice annually. This is the first fig to be created by mankind in a deliberate fig breeding program. It is a good white fig for hot areas and was hybridized and introduced by Professor Ira J. Condit in 1957. Outstanding! A fairly hardy, vigorous, long lived tree that is resistant to leaf mosaic. Leaf has cordate base and 5 lobes with the middle one being spatulate. Needs summer heat for good crops. Well adapted in California and the Southeast. [Verdone x capri fig]. (2)

      Is there a way to make the print larger - I can't read this stuff.

      I have the 2 different Conadrias that Edible Landscaping used to sell. The pulp is different in color but, . . .

        I don't know if this is the final size or not. It's still too small for me too. To make it larger, you can press 'cntl' and + ,, or.. 'cntl' and scroll on your mouse to the size you want.

        Or change the 'zoom' of your monitor. I usually am at about 150 or 175%

      There maybe more than one Conadria strain.

      Met R.Watts and he said this is his most reliable variety + bountiful.

        Gina,
        thx and how do you make that little comment box like you just did in my post?

        Pauly22,
        There are at least 2 strains. Both of mine are about 9 years old in 15 g pots and they are very productive and reliable. Good fig.

            mgg -- I'm glad to see you healthy enough to be active again. Also: I'm all for you getting this resolved, but would you please consider taking this discussion about print size and other issues about forum layout / parameters over to a different topic area please? You're writing in the section that's intended to be reference content, about the Conadria variety. Even if your questions are specific to the Fig Varieties subforum, it would belong over in another topic thread, (such as the one on
            "Forum Changes...." http://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-ho...-forum-changes
            or even
            "Varieties List (subforum)" (which is a thread ABOUT this subforum, not the varieties subforum itself)
            http://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-ho...-list-subforum

            I doubt you intend this stuff to be what people find when they come looking for reference information about Conadria.

            My Conadria is three years old and growing nicely. It is about seven feet tall. I hope that I get some fruit this year.

              It needs as much sun as possible (like all the figs). Mine is also 3 years old and has figlets at almost every node. It gets 9am-6pm sun. Last year I had about 10 figs at the same location.

            What is the difference between the DFIC #50 and DFIC #05?
            Why are they listed under two different numbers?
