So succulent - they ripen and partially dry on the tree for fullest honey-like flavor. More Potassium than bananas, and full of chewy sweetness. Calimyrna (in Turkey, called Sari Lop or Lop Incir). Large: skin light yellow-green to golden yellow; pulp amber to light strawberry; fresh flavor good, very sweet; the standard of excellence for whole dried figs. Best-known of Smyrna figs, which require caprification (pollination by fig wasps, which live only in dry, inedible wild figs, called capri-figs) to bear fruit. Grown in Meander (Menderes) Valley of Turkey for centuries; introduced to California in 1880. First successful crop in 1899. Accounts for 50% of the fresh fig crop and 38% of the dried.
