Condit Monograph

Moscatel Branco: (syn. Pingo de Mel). Described and illustrated by Bobone (1932) as a Portuguese variety, not grown commercially, but widely distributed in Algarve. The name Pingo de Mel, “honey-drop,” is sometimes given because of the honeylike gum which exudes from the eye. The trees generally produce two crops.

Breba crop small; fruits pyriform, with short, thick neck and short stalk; color yellowish green; pulp red, with traces of violet.

Second crop heavy; figs pyriform to spherical; skin smooth, somewhat puberulent; color dark green; pulp red; texture fine; quality very good.
