Light-pink flesh has excellent, rich flavor. Productive, vigorous, disease-resistant, medium-sized tree. Info. from Commercial Dried Fig Production in California, University of California, Leaflet 21051, p. 6, November 1978: Conadria was developed and released in 1956 by Ira Condit of the University of California. The breba fruits are large and can be used fresh or dried. Fruits of the second crop are numerous, medium sized, and have a relatively small eye. This variety is a heavy producer, and the fruits are utilized much like those of Adriatic. The tree also leafs out with Adriatic.

Conadria [adriatic hybrid / verdone hybrid] - A choice, large, light greenish yellow to white fig with a thin skin. This pyriform fig has an excellent, rich, sweet flavor with a rose pink flesh that is very good fresh or dried. The eye is small and very tight which keeps it from spoiling during wet weather. The tree is very productive and bears twice annually. This is the first fig to be created by mankind in a deliberate fig breeding program. It is a good white fig for hot areas and was hybridized and introduced by Professor Ira J. Condit in 1957. Outstanding! A fairly hardy, vigorous, long lived tree that is resistant to leaf mosaic. Leaf has cordate base and 5 lobes with the middle one being spatulate. Needs summer heat for good crops. Well adapted in California and the Southeast. [Verdone x capri fig].
