Cross-pollination is the process of applying pollen from one flower to the pistils of another flower. Pollination occurs in nature with the help of insects and wind. This process can also be done by hand to produce offspring with desired traits, such as colour or pest resistance.

    Fig–fig wasp. Fig trees, plants of the genus Ficus, are a keystone species in many ecosystems and are found on every continent, with the exception of Antartica. There are species of fig identified and an estimated – fig wasp species in existence. Most fig trees are pollinated by the fig wasps, and in these cases, the pollinating. Karl Marx. Karl Marx was born in in Trier, Prussia. While attending university in Berlin he was influenced by the ideas of the philosopher Hegel and his critics, the Young Hegelians, but Marx eventually rejected both schools of thought.

Caprifig (kăp′rə-fĭg′) n. A wild variety of Mediterranean fig (Ficus carica) used in the caprification of certain edible figs. The pear-shaped structure on this plant that encloses numerous small flowers and later develops into an inedible multiple fruit.

[Middle English. The common fig (Ficus carica) is a gynodioecious species with bisexual trees (functional male caprifigs) and unisexual female determination is quite unlike other dioecious species, such as willows, marijuana, fruit flies and people. Contrary to many authors, sex determination in Ficus carica is NOT the XX/XY method suggested for mosses, cottonwoods and willows (and the method in most.

The fourth type, caprifigs (goat figs), provides the source ofpollen for commercial plantings of cauducous figs.

The term caprification is derived from the word capri the name by which the male or pollen-bearing fig is known, and is applied to the process of hanging the caprifigs in the Smyrna trees. The details of the process are somewhat obscure and complicated, and it is not strange that it is httle understood by the public in general, though known to.

Here early farmers invented caprification, in which twigs with mature waspholding syconia are cut from wild caprifigs and suspended on the true fig trees, where the pollinators are needed.

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 ())4 reported that most good fruits, including the fig, had received names.

Smith and H. Hansen (page images at HathiTrust). Caprifying once in every 3 days and once in every 6 days with two levels of caprifigs were considered as the sub-plot. The secondary sub-plot with six caprification vessels consisted of: a) a tin container, b) a black cardboard, c) a white cardboard, d) a netted metal, e) a netted plastic, and f) a basket made up from plant branches.

Apparently many ancient civilizations were aware of the fact that Ficus carica required pollination in order to produce edible, seed-bearing fruits, a process called caprification. In B.C., Aristotle described fig wasps that came out of caprifigs and penetrated the unripe female fig fruits, thus fertilizing them.

CAPRIFICATION. Herodotus ( B. C.) seems to have known caprification, and Aristotle about B. C., gave a perfectly clear account of it as follows:* " The figs of the caprifig contain small animals which are called psenes.

These are at first small grubs, and * History of Animals, Book 5, ch. 26, p. when their envelopes are broken.

Figs Of The Holy Land Caprification Of Cultivated Figs In California Fig Trees Of The Holy Land O ne of the earliest records of any fruit eaten by people of the Middle East is the common fig (Ficus carica). Remnants of figs have been found in archeological excavations dating back to the Neolithic era, about BM (Before Moses).

The fig. A single Mammoni matured and it did get quite large, with edible pulp and full of seeds. According to Condit book "Caprifigs and Caprification" (page ) the Mammoni that have almost no larvae inside, become at maturity, pulpy and edible. That also seems another sign of poor pollination.

Caprifigs can suffer severely from fig endosepsis, which subsequently is transferred to Smyrna-type figs by the pollinator fig wasp (Blastophaga psenes). Early in the s, we developed several techniques (two-step sanitation, spraying fungicides instead of dipping caprifigs, and biocontrol) that reduced endosepsis in caprifigs.

Abstract does not appear. First page follows. Introduction Culture of the fig, Ficus Carica L., began many centuries ago somewhere in Eurasia. Primitive man recognized the delectable qualities of the fruit, selected seedling trees bearing superior kinds, and thus established definite fig clones or varieties.

The wasp is called Blastophagus, and her work is called caprification.
