Pedigree
Condit Monograph

Kalamata: (syn. Messenia). A variety imported by the University of California from Athens, Greece, in 1930, and reported to be identical with the commercial fig of Kalamata. Panos Th. Anagnostopoulos, Athens, reports in a letter dated March 22, 1953, that the Kalamata fig is the same as Sari Lop of Turkey. See account by Condit (1924). Description is from figs produced at Riverside since 1933.

Figs medium, spherical to obovate; neck very short and thick; ribs not prominent; eye large, open; surface somewhat glossy, with delicate bloom; white flecks large, conspicuous; skin green, unattractive, often discoloring and checking crisscross at maturity; pulp dark strawberry; flavor rich, sweet; quality good. Commercially inferior because of poor skin color, dark pulp, and tendency to split.
