Condit Monograph

(syns. Brown Ischia, Chestnut-colored Ischia). Described by Miller (1768), Hanbury (1770), Forsyth (1803), Green (1824), George Lindley (1831), Rogers (1834), Holley (1854), Dochnahl (1855), Thompson (1859), Hogg (1866), Eisen (1888, 1901), Coleman (1887b), and Wright (1894). In his Gardener’s Dictionary of 1759, Miller described Small Brown Ischia as a variety bearing small figs, with leaves less divided than any of the other sorts. He also described the Brown or Chestnut-colored fig as “the largest yet seen.” It is possible that the first description properly referred to the White Ischia, the fruit of which has a violet flush when fully mature. Hogg and later English authors treat only Brown Ischia, and ignore the prefix, “small.”

A variety, under the name Brown Ischia, was tested at the Tulare station, where the fruit was found to be of excellent quality. A few growers later reported experience with it, but in at least one case the variety was confused with Brunswick. If any trees are now growing in California, their location is not known to us. The following description is after that of Hogg and Eisen.

The tree an excellent producer, especially in pots for forcing.

Figs medium, turbinate-spherical; eye very large; color light brown or chestnut; pulp violet, sweet and of good flavor.
