Description

Condit Monograph

Aranim-Amellal. Described and illustrated by Mauri (1939b, 1942), who reports that Aranim is masculine for Taranimt (“reed”); but the exact connection between the word and this variety of fig is not clear. Amellal means “white.” See also Blin (1942). Hanoteau and Letourneux (1872) list Aranim as a variety not requiring caprification. Tree of moderate vigor; leaves 5-lobed. Figs medium, short-pyriform, about the same size and shape as those of Aranim-Aberkane; stalk short; skin thin, parchmentlike, closely adherent to the meat; eye closed, with greenish-white scales bordered brown; color green; pulp red; flavor sweet; quality very good. Defects are the thin skin and the tendency to split. Counts show an average of 864 seeds for split fruits and 744 for nonsplit fruits.
