    DFIC# PI 18847:

    Per Condit
    This fig has long been highly regarded for culture in England, especially for forcing in pots. It was one of the best in the collection at Chiswick, from which it was imported into California as No. 18847. Trees are now rare in this state as the fruit drops badly while small. Apparantly it does best in cool climates. The breba crop is small or missing. Figs medium, oblate-turbinate with short, thick neck and short stalk; eye medium, open; color greenish violet; bloom prominent; pulp dark strawberry, hollow at the center; quality fair to good.
