Description

Condit Monograph

Aboucherchaou. (Name signifies “rough,” because of the rugose character of the leaves.) See description by Trabut (1904, 1923), and Blin (1942), as Thamcingoult or Thabouhiaboult. Described and illustrated by Mauri (1939b, 1942). Sometimes called “Tabouyahboult,” but this name is also used for the variety Alekake. Listed by Hanoteau and Letourneux (1872) as Abouh’archaou, and as not requiring caprification. Especially interesting because it matures about two weeks earlier than other autumn figs.

Tree vigorous, erect, productive; leaves generally 3-lobed. Figs oblate-spherical, up to 2 inches in diameter and 1-1/2 inches in length; ribs slightly elevated; eye large, 1/4 inch across, open; scales green, changing to carmine with light margin; color green; pulp dark red; flavor sweet; quality good. Fruits too watery for drying, spoiling even on the tree.
