Figs of the Common type develop parthenocarpically, and do not usually require the stimulus of pollination to bring the syconia to maturity. Some common figs, such as Barnissotte and Verdal, drop all or nearly all the fruit buds of the first crop but mature a good second crop. Others, such as Franciscana and Dottato, have practically complete parthenocarpic development in both crops. As pointed out under Brunswick, the expression of parthenocarpy is incomplete in some varieties, and is apparently affected by the environmental complex. As with the other types, the varieties will be treated under groups based on external and internal color. The following key to some of the varieties grown in the collection at Riverside is given in order to show differentiation of important characters. For comparison, see the key to French fig varieties by Simonet et al. (1945). See also Donno (1951a) for characters of twigs and buds useful in distinguishing varieties during the dormant season.
