Condit Monograph

(syns. Napolitano, Neapolitan). Described by Audibert Frères (1854), Duchartre (1857), Du Breuil (1876), Soc. Pomol. de France (1887, 1947), Eisen (1888, 1901), Trabut (1904), Mazières (1920), Sanchez (1922), and Blin (1942). This is probably the same as Napolitano, described and figured by Pasquale (1876), and distributed in France under the name Napolitaine. Eisen (1888) ventured the opinion that it was identical with Troiano, so widely grown and highly regarded at Naples. Troiano, however, produces no first crop, or only a scanty one, while Napolitaine is described as productive of two crops in southern France.

The tree is said to be vigorous, and very productive. The following description is after that of Société Pomologique de France.

Brebas large; elongated-oval; color green, suffused with violet-bronze; pulp red; quality fair.

Second-crop figs medium, turbinate; skin color same as brebas; pulp red, sweet; quality very good.
