Abstract does not appear. First page follows. Introduction The common fig occurs in a great number of varieties, which have evolved mainly as natural seedlings during the many centuries in which this fruit has been under cultivation. As early as the fourth century B.C., (Theophrastus (1916))4 reported that most good fruits, including the fig, had received names. Ulysses, the hero of the Odyssey, obtained from his father twenty fig trees, all with names. In the first century of the… Expand
Identification and characterization of Italian common figs (Ficus carica) using nuclear microsatellite markers
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to genetically characterize, with nSSR markers, 79 fig accessions, collected in several areas in Italy, and the results demonstrated a great genetic variability within the population. Expand
Characterization of edible fig germplasm from Puglia, southeastern Italy: Is the distinction of three fig types (Smyrna, San Pedro and Common) still valid?
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the 24 fig genotypes revealed a clear distinction between Common and San Pedro type figs, and greater understanding of fig biological caprification is important to distinguish fig types into those requiring caprification and those that do not require caprification. Expand
Initial assessment of natural diversity in Mexican fig landraces.
TLDR
It is shown that after hundreds of years, black figs have adapted to local environmental condition in Central Mexico, yielding at least six clearly distinct landraces that represent valuable and previously undescribed genetic diversity. Expand
Ancient and modern occurrences of common fig (Ficus carica L.) in the British isles
TLDR
Knowledge of the reproductive biology of the common fig is essential for the interpretation of present and past occurrences of pips from archaeological layers as well as for understanding the status of trees, cultivated or wild. Expand
The Fig: Overview of an Ancient Fruit
TLDR
The fig fruit has long been associated withhorticulture in the Mediterranean region and is reported to have been first brought into cul­tivation in southern Arabia and to have become established across the Middle East and Mediterranean region. Expand
haracterization of edible fig germplasm from Puglia , southeastern taly : Is the distinction of three fig types ( Smyrna , San Pedro and ommon ) still valid ?
Fig. (Ficus carica L.) is a gynodioecious species with two major sex types: the caprifig (hermaphroditic), which has male flowers and short-styled female flowers, and the fig (female) with onlyExpand
Screening of Fig Varieties for Rootstocks Resistant to Soil Sickness
TLDR
'Zidi' is a suitable rootstock for its tolerance to soil sickness and has no influence on fruit quality, such as Brix and skin color. Expand
FIG GENETIC RESOURCES AND RESEARCH AT THE US NATIONAL CLONAL GERMPLASM REPOSITORY IN DAVIS, CALIFORNIA
The National Clonal Gcrmplasm Repository (NCGR) in Davis, California houses most of the Mediterranean-adapted fruit and nut crop collections in the US, including the fig. The NCGR is part of theExpand
Morphological diversity of caprifig (Ficus carica var. caprificus) accessions in the eastern Mediterranean region of Turkey: Potential utility for caprification
TLDR
Great morphological and pollinizer variability among the caprifig accessions is demonstrated, which makes them valuable genetic resources to incorporate into breeding programs in addition to their use for caprification. Expand
Evaluation of Genetic Variation of Common Fig (Ficus carica L.) in West of Iran
TLDR
The obtained results revealed that central Zagros Mountains in the west of Iran is a rich source of fig genetic diversity which could be used for fig breeding programs. Expand
