Description

A medium to large, golden yellow fig with strawberry pulp. From Condit's breeding program. A. J. Bullard of North Carolina says it is an excellent fig. Apparently hardy. Attractive, light-yellow, amber fleshed good quality sweet figs resist splitting. Productive tree was bred by Ira Condit as a replacement for Calimyrna.

Deanna produces large green figs that ripen to yellow or greenish yellow. The strawberry to amber flesh is considered to be of very good quality. The small eye helps to minimize spoiling. Deanna is another fig that came out of Dr. Ira Condit's breeding program at UC Davis, Riverside. It was developed to replace Calimyrna and it also has good cold hardiness.

Deanna is one of Dr. Condit's varieties which came out of the breeding program at Riverside, Calif. and were selected on the basis of being crack- and split-resistant; most have a small eye. All have very high sugar content and are very resistant to decay.

Attractive, light-yellow, amber fleshed good quality sweet figs resist splitting. Productive tree was bred by Ira Condit as a replacement for Calimyrna.
