Description

Currently, can be a little expensive.

Pons translation: The fig tree described is cultivated in the Mut Nou, planted by the cuttings of good friend Matthew "Meló", a mower that went from the house, and the fig tree mother is cultivated in the Minar by Josep Sacarès and Mulet.

The tree has a very rounded, almost spherical, great development and high vigorous, dense and thick, and very prolific foliage, of large and colorful figs, of stepped and durable harvest. Annual growth is one of the strongest, both in diameter and in length.

The figs are pyriform, large and colorful, of very good caliber, of intense black color, are quite symmetrical, but they are also very variable in dimensions. They have the skin of a medium thickness, rough medium. The peduncle is reddish brown in the basal part, distinctive character of this variety. They present a difficult abscission of the peduncle and a medium ease of peeling. The pulp is dark red with a sweet and tasty flavor.

They are soft of consistency, little resistant to transport, with little ease of release, good resistance to the rains, and medium resistance to the opening of the ostiolo.

The leaves are trilobulate and whole in a smaller quantity, remove large, with little pilosity and an obtuse peciolar angle.

The CALDERONA variety is originated from Felanitx, and it is called thus by its similar shape to a small kettle.
