Condit Monograph

Barron (1891) described this variety as bearing small, pyriform figs. Eisen (1901) regarded Grassale as a synonym of Figue de Grasse or Matarassa, the fruit of which is described as very large. P.I. No. 18,883 of the Chiswick collection was received in California as Grassale, and fruited in several collections. At the Tulare Experiment Station of the University, it was reported as a failure in 1890. The following description is from trees growing at Riverside since 1928.

Trees small, lacking in vigor; terminal buds green. Leaves medium, somewhat glossy above, mostly 5-lobed; both upper and lower sinuses moderately deep and broad; basal sinus sometimes broadly subcordate, but often narrow, or almost closed; margins crenate.

Breba crop none. Second-crop figs oblate-spherical, below medium to small; average weight 25 grams; neck absent, or when present, short and somewhat flattened; ribs fairly conspicuous; eye medium, open; color green, becoming spotted with brown at maturity, unattractive; pulp light strawberry, or dark red when caprified; quality poor. Very susceptible to spoilage. (Plate 17, D.)
