Other Comments

HarveyC @ Figaholics: Medium sized fig from Turkey with mild flavor and moderate sweetness, some acidity, moderate seed crunch. I have not confirmed if this variety is a common type or not.

Condit Monograph

As Bardajic: (syns. Bardajik, Bardakjik). Name from two Turkish words, bardak, “pitcher,” and jik, “small,” the fruit resembling a water pitcher in general shape. See accounts by Eisen (1901), Roeding (1903, 1914), Rixford (1918a), Nadir and Halit (1929), Hagan (1929), Condit (1920b, 1947), and Ozbek (1949). A variety grown in coastal districts near Smyrna, where residents and visitors become familiar with the early morning cries of the peddler, “Bardajic! Bardajic!” as he calls attention to the fresh figs carried in panniers on the back of a donkey.

Tree compact, spreading; leaves large, 5-lobed, with shallow sinuses. Figs large near the coast, smaller in the interior, pyriform, with prominent neck; stalk long, slender (short, according to Ozbek); ribs distinct; eye small; color green; white flecks scattered, small; skin thin, checking crisscross at maturity; pulp scarlet; flavor sweet. Quality excellent fresh, but not good for drying because of the dark, tough skin, and red color of pulp.

Ozbek gives the average weight of Bardajic figs as 52 grams and the number of seeds per gram as 1057. Experience with the Bardajic at Fresno California, has been unsatisfactory, on account of splitting of the fruit on the tree.
