Description
Condit

Described by Eisen (1897, 1901), with illustration of leaf and fruit; also, in the 1901 catalogue of Barren Hill Nursery, Nevada City, California, as a French fig, far superior to the Ischias and the Celeste (Malta).

Starnes and Monroe (1907) reported a test of “Magdalena,” received from California, but trees had not fruited up to that time. The variety is here considered distinct from Madeleine, which Eisen gives as a synonym.

Figs described as small, turbinate-spherical, with long, slender stalk; ribs prominent; color greenish yellow; pulp amber.
