    Donated from: California, United States (Comment: Donated to NCGR, Davis) Donors: University of California.
    Maintained by the Natl. Germplasm Repository - Davis. NPGS received: 01-Jan-1900

    The above UNVERIFIED accession names were cited as synonyms in Fig Varieties: Hilgardia, Vol. 23, No. 11, 1955, p. 422, by Condit. Rating of this variety by fig grower, Mr. Ray Givan, in Pomona, Vol. XXIX, No. 1, Winter 1996: Very good; sours in rainy weather.
    DFIC# 69:


    A very large fig. Purplish-black, lighter or even green towards the stalk. Numerous white flecks. Pulp is light strawberry. Turbinate-pyriform, sometimes oblique with a broad apex. Eye medium, open. Leaf: base cordate; 5 lobes, middle lobe spatulate, side lobes latate. Flavor is sweet and rich. Needs heat to develop good flavor and adequate sugar. Very good to excellent fresh; poor when stewed as it breaks up. Well-adapted in the Southwest and South. (1)
    Skin and flesh colors: Purple; strawberry. Grows well in most regions. More tolerant of cold than most fig varieties so recommended for marginal fig regions. This variety produces abundant crops of large figs at a young age.
