Of the Queen, SMN092IB

Description

Grows well, but slow to produce. Good tasting figs.

Pons translation: The fig tree is located in Son Bardenàs, in the East, between fig trees and olive trees, in a valley, surrounded by mountains, terraces and olive groves.

The tree has a good development, with a rounded cup, but altive, explainable by its great vigor, thick and elongated, very dense foliage, quite tight. It is very prolific and in addition it is a bífera variety, of two crops, one of brevas and another of figs in August. It has a very good growth of annual shoots, and also a long period of harvest.

Both brevas and figs in August are ovoid, quite conical, large, colorful, and very elegant. They are quite symmetrical in shape and uniform in dimensions. They present a very low percentage of fruits attached and also of abnormal formations. They are of an intense black color, with the purple or reddish neck, prominent thick cracks, thin and thin epidermis to the touch, pulp of light red, very tasty, sweet and juicy. They have a median ease of peeling, as well as the abscission of the peduncle. They are very resistant to rains and to the rocks, little sensitive to the opening of the ostiole, and susceptible to detachment. They have an almost nonexistent peduncle and do not present a drop of honey in the ostiole. It is a variety worthy of being cultivated in the best higuerales of the Island.

The leaves are mostly pentalobadas and less trilobated, with very marked toothed margins, with an acute peciolar angle.

The variety OF THE QUEEN originates from the estate of the Ermitage, in the Orient, but, already aged, it was reproduced on the estate of Son Bardenàs, thanks to the current owners, who were from the Hermitage, in the same town from the East.

Due to the viscosity, excellence and quality of the fig, they make it worthy of being called the Queen.
