Description

Pons translation: The fig tree is grown in Son Peixet, Llucmajor, Cosma and Miquel Julià, in a plantation of almonds and fig trees next to the old houses of the mentioned estate.

The tree reaches a medium, high-altitude and rounded cup, thick with foliage and dense branch, growth of the unexpected annual outbreaks, a yield of medium harvest, as well as the harvesting period. It is one of the earliest varieties of figs that produce figs in August. It presents, in damp years, a great tendency to a very noticeable opening of the ostiolo, resembling a flower of 3, 4 or 5 petals.

The figs are spherical, quite ovoid, of yellowish green, uniform in size and symmetrical in shape. The skin is hard, rough and furry to the touch, the pulp is light red, little tasty, with aquenios in large numbers, small. They do not present abnormal formations. They have easy peduncle abscision and very easy peeling. They are very susceptible to the opening of the ostiole, cracking very often, even due to the humidity of rains and spills. They are resistant to sriff and are not resistant to transport.

It is the earliest variety after finishing brevas, quality sufficiently important to be placed between the first ones for drying.

The leaves are trilobated and in a smaller proportion pentalobadas, with remarkable pilosity in the envés, of sawed margins; They have an acute peciolar angle.

The CARLINA variety is originally from Algaida, where it was born inside a dry stone wall, discovered by a certain Charles from where the name comes to him, around 1840.
