Conadria Fig Tree
Conadria is an excellent fig that was introduced by Ira Condit and bred by him at the California Agricultural Experiment Station in Riverside, California. It’s been a popular fig since its release in 1955 and has proven an excellent choice for cooler climates, both in its ability to ripen sweet fruits and handle cold winters. Flesh is a strawberry red with a green skin.
One of the easiest fruits to grow, and a true gourmet delight, you should not live your life without feasting on this sweet, delectable fruit. To fully enjoy fresh Figs you must grow your own. When fully ripe and at their tender, shipping them long distances is virtually impossible. Another plus for Figs – deer don’t like them (most of the time)!
