Description

Condit Monograph

Ficus pseudo-carica Miq. This species, indigenous to Eritrea and Abyssinia, was introduced into California by Dr. F. Franceschi, of Santa Barbara, in 1902; sometimes designated as “Abyssinian caprifig.” Like F. palmata, it has been used for hybridizing with F. carica. See Franceschi (1912), Rixford (1912, 1918a), Rixford and Heiny (1911), Trabut (1922), and Condit (1947, 1920a); the last with illustration of fruit and leaves.

The tree has slender, willowy branches, with dormant buds violet; leaves small, mostly 3-lobed; sinuses medium; base truncate; texture thin, velvety; petioles very pubescent, russet in color; mosaic spots prominent, with some leaves dwarfed or malformed.

Mamme figs small, pyriform, with prominent, slender neck and long, slender stalk; color violet-purple; interior white; staminate flowers present. Profichi small, elongated-pyriform, with slender neck and long stalk; ribs narrow; eye protruding; color brown to purplish black; interior white.
