    DFIC# 7:

    aka Osborn
    aka Neverella

    Archipel (Osborn) was tested at the Amador, Tulare, and Paso Robles Experiment Stations in California between 1889 and 1896, and was reported to produce high-quality figs in abundance. Individual trees have been found in the foothills of Merced and Mariposa counties in various localities near San Francisco Bay, and in southern California.
    Trees are upright in habit of growth; terminal dormant buds are green in color. Leaves above medium, 3- to 5-lobed, the basal lobe sometimes auricled; upper sinuses of medium depth and width, lower sinuses shallow, basal sinus sometimes narrow and almost closed, but generally open, forming a cordate base; margins coarsely crenate; surface somewhat glossy. The following description is from fruit produced at Riverside since 1930.
    Breba crop good. Figs above medium, pyriform, somewhat oblique; neck prominent, often elongated; stalk short; ribs not prominent, mostly evident as dark- colored bands; eye medium, open, scales reddish brown; skin cracking or checking at full maturity; color bronze, tinged with violet; bloom delicate; meat white; pulp cottony white, tinged with pink; texture spongy or mealy; flavor somewhat strong; quality fair. Of doubtful value, on account of unattractive color and poor flavor. (2)
