VARIETIES OF THE SAN PEDRO TYPE

San Pedro-type figs combine the fruit-setting peculiarities of both the Smyrna and the Common type on one tree in a single annual cycle. First crop figs (brebas) are of the Common type, and develop parthenocarpically. Second-crop figs are of the Smyrna type, the syconia dropping unless stimulated by pollination and fertilization of the longstyled flowers. All of the twenty-one varieties included in the list of San Pedro-type figs bear a more or less abundant crop of brebas. Since parthenocarpic development of second-crop figs is not a fixed character, the inclusion of certain varieties or the omission of others may be questioned. An example of a perplexing variety is the King, which, without caprification, drops practically all of the main crop at Riverside, but matures a large percentage in coastal climates. Drap d’Or is included in the San Pedro group, although at Riverside a small number of second-crop figs reach maturity without the stimulus of caprification.
