Large, yellow skin, yellow pulp, flattened. Used dried. Not grown in southern California as it requires the fig wasp for caprification. Figs drop if not pollinated.

Noted for its delicious nut-like flavor and tender, golden skin, the Calimyrna fig is the popular favorite for eating out of hand. As the name implies, the Calimyrna is the California version of the Smyrna fig, which was imported by a San Joaquin Valley grower.
