Description

Condit Monograph

Rogers (1834) stated that all the Ischia figs introduced by Miller from an Italian island of that name were of first quality. Barron (1868e) reported that Miller probably lost or destroyed the original labels of Italian figs, and then substituted such names as Ischia or Genoa in their places. In the 1759 edition of his Gardener’s Dictionary, Miller briefly described the Brown or chestnut-colored Ischia, the Green Ischia; the Yellow Ischia, and the Small Brown Ischia, but not the White Ischia. Several later writers treat White Ischia and Green Ischia as synonymous, but in this monograph the two are treated separately, the latter as Verte. White Ischia will be described simply as Ischia, others of the group as Ischia Black, Ischia Brown, and Ischia Yellow. The last is briefly mentioned under “skin green or yellow.” The synonym Nerii, which sometimes appears with Ischia White, apparently refers to the Italian nero or “black”; if used at all, therefore, it should appear with Ischia Black.
