Additional Information
USDA / UC Davis Accession Data
According to Condit, the proper name for this variety is San Piero, but few call it that. (004) (006)

A medium purplish-brown fig with amber tinged with pink pulp. Best for fresh use. Light crop of brebas which are oblique-pyriform, sometimes elongated. Leaf: base calcarate; lobes lyrate; margins crenate. Usually a disappointment in the South since it loses hardiness quite easily in the spring. Experienced California growers recommend heavy pruning for the best crops. (006)

Very large, dark purple skin, reddish pulp, used as fresh fruit. Poor at coast, ripens slowly, low sugar, bland flavor usually rots before it ripens. Has large eye, tends to split. (011)
