Figs are mentioned in many of our earliest texts, and evidence suggests that these broad, deciduous trees have been in cultivation for thousands of years. The fig tree’s leaf, in particular, is a widely familiar shape that has provided some of the world’s most famous statues and paintings with strategic covering and a modicum of modesty. In the landscape, these large, deeply lobed leaves provide a coarse texture and cast dense shade. The tree itself is usually short but wide in stature with smooth, silvery bark, multiple trunks, and a remarkable tolerance of desert heat and sun.
‘Kadota’ produces two crops per year of medium-sized, green to yellow-skinned fruit with a light pink to amber flesh. The flavor is exceptionally sweet whether eaten fresh, canned, or dried. ‘Kadota’ is especially adapted to arid desert conditions, and is one of the most commonly grown commercial varieties.
