Thank you!
Yes, I just also received an email response from Howard Garrison at UC Davis.  He said pretty much the same thing.  The seed that this seedling came from is from the same seedlot (collected by Ned Garvey) as 8 other fig seedling planted in that field where it is now.  The seeds did come from Albania.  I guess they wanted to show relation among the seedling and may not have been sure whether any of them would amount to anything until mature.  The site you gave mentioned the fruit as being insipid, but that could be conditional.  For example, some old fig info I've read discounts Pastiliere as rather insipid and useless for some area while detaining how it was regarded quite highly in another climate area.  I am interested in the genetic potential, and I think that even if the figs seem insipid, the genetics are still there for that and other aspects of the plant that I'm interested in.
--- Again, thanks.

I found it on a profile of UC Davis fig photos.  It can be seen by searching the designation a-10-5 online (Yahoo! search). 
-- So, I know it exists/(existed): I hope it is not now extinct.

It was seen on the UC Davis germplasm repository site but is not on their list of available varieties.

--- just found the 347-1 info on the site.  I wonder, does 347-1 taste good as edible or is it simply a pollinator?

Does anybody have any experience with the variety "Aked"?
-- Maybe seen the tree or fruit, tasted it, or maybe heard about it from a friend?  I'm interested in knowing more about it but haven't found much on the net.  Thanks.
-- I did just see the info on the link from this site for it, and I also noticed the moderator has it for sell.  Great!

Has anyone ever seen the a-10-5 fig or tasted its fruit?
-- Is it known by any other names/s perhaps?

Nice info. -- So T30E is 5/8th's smyrna-type.  Great! -- nice closed eye, too, and I like the thinly-lobed leaves.  It is taking the heat real well right now, and it hasn't rained in weeks. Does anyone have pics of the 347-1 caprifig that was also part of the lineage for T30E?

Okay, well. that is some helpful info for sure!  I'd been wondering about my T30E the last year or so.  It had figs for me last year, but they were as if ripe on the outside -- honey-sweet -- and like unripe on the inside: very odd.  I pruned it rather deeply over the winter, and this spring it had a nice crop; however, they seemed filled with a pollen-like powder on the insides & not just at the eye.  It seemed like pollen to me, but it didn't have a "capri" prefix, and it wasn't just at the eye -- all inside, too,...so I thought it might be and that maybe nobody had realized it somehow.  It's leaves seem a little virusy, but it does get edible when dead ripe to slightly overripe. I do wish it had a red meat, though, LOL -- one of my personal likes in figs. Thanks for the info.!

Since I have seen 11-7w also listed somewhere as KAC 11-7w, I thought perhaps it was a Kalamata fig, which is an edible variety, right?  I'm not sure if it is a Kalamata fig though by the KAC prefix or not.  Do you know?

Thanks!  -- Any idea yet as to the quality of the ripe fruits on these... and the eye on the ripe 11-7w's?  Is this your first set of figs on these?  -- Much appreciated.

Hey,
  I'd like info/pics for the UC Davis germplasm varieties 11-7W and Capri 271-1.   Can anyone help on this?  Thanks.

Well,
-- Drought & heat-tolerance.
-- It's different, here.
-- Intrigueing looks.
-- Low-maintenance (less watering).
.... I noticed how a nice fig tree I have that has huge leaves was wilting, daily, during times of heat & low-rainfall, the past few years.  Twice, it dropped its fruit.  I'm guessing a thin-lobed leaf might work better without having to water it so much during the summer.  Problem is, most thin-lobe-leaved figs seem to be open-eyed, and those kind sour due to bugs getting into them here.  That makes for a stinky, nasty mess.

Is "Aked" an open-eyed fig, and does it need pollination?
-- And what about it's quality?

Also, what are some nice, closed-eyed varieties with thin-lobed leaves? Here in SE TX, the fruits sour and make a mess if open-eyed or if the eye isn't plugged by fig-honey like with "Alma".

-- I know about "Negronne", but also wonder about others, especially if rich & juicy, and preferably with very dark interiors/exteriors.
-- Thanks.

I have a tree of that variety. The last two years, it dropped its figs in the heat -- big heavy leaves. So, I pruned it rather heavily last winter, and this year the tree has a nice crop. I noticed recently how large the figs were even though not very close to ripening, and they seem to be holding...so far, but it has been getting really hot & dry. Still, the big leaves haven't been wilting like the previous years. I guess the roots have gotten down a bit deeper.

I saw some info about heating cuttings to a certain temperature for awhile, to kill the virus, without hurting the cuttings. Does this work?

I have ordered figs from there, and they were nice, large plants for the price, (for mail order). However, I haven't gotten any mature fruit yet to see if they got the right ones to me. I think I do recall having maybe gotten one plant that wasn't right. I have a few small figs on one of them, so time will tell, right?

Does anyone know where I can get a cutting of the fig variety a-10-5?
It isn't listed on the available varieties list for the germplasm repository at UC Davis, but it did show up among a lot of pictures of their varieties. 
-- I have an interest in certain characteristics in particular, and it seems like something of use to me, although the one pictured on their site did look virusy perhaps.  I'd really like to get a plant or cuttings of the variety.  Also, does anyone know anything about the qualities of the fruit & tree? Thanks for any info.
