Description

Condit Monograph

Alekake (syn. Tabouyahboult in some districts). Described and illustrated by Mauri (1939b, 1942). Name signifies “tender” or “soft,” on account of the consistency of the mature fruit. Probably the variety described and illustrated by Trabut (1904) under the name Thaiadelst is the same as Alekake at Tizi-Rached. See also Blin (1942). Alekake resembles Aboucherchaou, but its leaves have more lobes, the fruits are larger and more oblate, of superior quality, and the season is 12 to 15 days later.

Tree vigorous, spreading, productive; leaves large, 3- to 5-lobed. Figs oblate, up to 2-1/4 inches in diameter and 1-1/2 inches in length; stalk short; eye open, 1/4 inch across; scales brown when mature; color green; pulp red; texture fine; quality very good. One of the best for table use; equally good dried.
