juice. Tho excellence of the Smyrna
fig lies in the nbuntlniicc, in the re
coptnclc, of the minute fruits or so
culled seeds, run! especially in that
these 8ccdsnrc filled m Mi albuminous
matter of n strong aromatic flavor.
No one mistakes the tasto of tho
Smyrna fig, and tins taste, so accept
able to all, is derhed solely from
the seed. Until, therefore, nc can
proi'ueo a fig containing fruits or
seeds tilled with like albuminous
matter, we cannot hope to eqmil the
Smyrna fig. 1 believe it possible to
produce such a fig."
Mr. Mastin early in 188(5 procur
ed a box of "Imperial" Smyrna figs,
llesayss "The souls of tbeso figs 1
sowed in a hot house. Fully a month
elapsed before there was n sign of
growth. Later in the spring, the
young trees were transpiantca to a
nursery, and planted in rows 2 feet
apait and 8 inches apart in the rows,
and immediately covereu wilu straw
to shield thein from the sun. They
received no irrigation. In the spring
of 1887 they weio set out in tho or
chard 2f feci apart in triangular
form. They were allowed to grow
as many branches -and trunks as
came, for the purpose of inducing
pxtensive root giowtli. In the spiing
of 188H they were cut down close to
the ground, and of the sprouts which
came, one, the strongest, was select
ed and the others removed. These
trees bore fruit this year (181)0)
upon the wood gronthof 1889: they
were about the size of a pigeon's egg,
a lively yellow, the Ucsh amber and
containing only a few small seeds."
(No further data concerning Mr.
Mastin's experiment is available at
"Fig culture, I confidently be
lieve," says Mr. Mastin, "will in
five years lank in importance with
that of the raisin, prune or giape. I
do believe that California in the fu
ture will excel Smyrna in the fig pro
duct, because wc have soil and cli
mate and everything else favorable."
It is yet to be determined which is
the best section of California State
for the culture of the fig. It is said
by experts that the climate and foot
hills of the Sierra Nevada are identi
cal with theSmyrnadistrict. The fiuit
of the foothills especially of Placer
County has proved superior to that
of the valleys.
In Florida the expeiitncnt has been
made of shipping fresh figs to not th
em markets With eminent success.
They are sent in refrigerator cars,
caiefully packed in quait boxes, and
having been picked just before matu
rity they ripen in transit, and ar
rive in perfect order, bringing 30
to 40 cents a quart. There are many
sections of Florida that are adapted
by both soil and climate to the fig
and its cultuie is a growing indus
The U. S. Consul at Smyrna in his
report on the fig furnishes the follow
Situation. The trees are grown
in the Ardin district SO to 100 miles
distant from the sea, and 250 to 500
feet above sea level. Much expo
sure to sun is required. The tiee
thrives in ail descriptions of land,
provided they be protected against
the north wind.
Soil. Rich black vegetable mold
is the best.
Templ-ratuue. A temperate cli
mate is the main thing: minimum
40 , maximum 110 , average 80 F.,
Rainfall. Yearly aveiage 24 in
ches. Rain during winter strength
ens the trees ; during summer it in
jures the ciop.
Iukioation. Good fig orchards
are never irrigated ; newly planted
young trees need wateiing during
the first two years of their growth.
Cultivation. Fig orchards are
plowed 4 or 5 tinies a year begin
ning from November. Manure is
only used when the soil is poor.
Piiunino. When the trees grow
old they need pruning during win
ter. Picking: and Cuuinu. When per
fectly ripe the fruit falls by itself
and it is then spread in the sun. In
the packing bouses they are soiled,
flattened out and put in boxes for
shipment. No chemical solution is
employed, the packets wet their
bands with plain sea water which
hastens the sugaring of the figs.
The export from Smyrna is about
7000 tons, worth at the port of ship
ment about 2, 000,000, and it is ihu
most important industry of the peo
ple. The export is piincipally to
Germany, England, the United States
A review of U. S. Consular reports
fiom various countries concerning
the fig elicits the following as the re
quisite conditions for its successful
culture: They will grow anywhere
from sea level to an altitude of 2500
feet where the temperature does not
fall below 50 F., and lias a mean
average of about 75 or 80 . Hilly,
rolling land somewhat back from the
coast with sunny exposure Is the best,
and a dry calcareous soil where the
rainfall does not exceed 30 inches
per annum. Too much dampness or
rain makes the tieu run to wood
and renders the fiuit wutery and
insipid. Inigation is uiiiiecessary
except in the Hi st two years growth
of a young plant. Scarcely any cul
tivation is necessary.
The figs grown in and about Hono
lulu are not very choice, being
watery and insipid, and inclined to
rot in tho drying process. Rut there
is no doubt that if tho pioper condi
tions were observed tho fig could bo
successfully cultivated in many sec
lions of these islands.
