Condit Monograph

Albo: (syns. Albicello, Albinillo, Bianchetta, Biancoletta, Biancolini, Blanca, Blanquita, Dorato, D’Oro, Gentile at Bologna, Mattano, Moscadello, Zentil). Described by Porta (1583), Gallesio (1817), Gasparrini (1845), Pasquale (1876), Roda (1881), Eisen (1901, with figure), Tamaro (1948), and Baldini (1953); the last with illustration of leaf, breba, and second-crop fruit.

According to Gallesio, it is one of the few varieties found along the whole coast of Italy, but not in France or Spain. Gasparrini described Fico Albo with Fico Trojano in parentheses, and also treated Biancolini as a distinct variety. Eisen regarded it as one of the best Italian figs, especially well regarded in the markets of Pavia and Milan. Tamaro described the variety as Blanca.

Tree of medium size. Leaves mostly 3-lobed; base cordate. Not fruited at Riverside, California; resembles very much the variety Angélique, described elsewhere in this monograph: Description is after that of Baldini.

Brebas almost spherical, with short, thick neck; stalk short; color canary yellow; pulp white; quality good.

Second-crop figs medium, oblate-spherical, flattened at the apex; neck none stalk medium; ribs indistinct; eye open, with rose-colored scales; skin yellow; pulp amber, almost seedless, very sweet. Used mostly fresh; sometimes dried.
