    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)
