Description

The Discoverer of the Kadota fig is Stephen H. Taft

The honor and credit for the discovery of the remarkable fig now known
as the Kadota belongs exclusively to that wise old horticulturist, the late
Stephen H. Taft, of Sawtelle, a member of the Centenary Club of Southern
California. 

When nearing the brave old age of five score years he crossed over the
sunset sea, leaving behind him a horticultural triumph whose magnitude and
value were but faintly appreciated even by himself. 

As the planted acres of this fig are leaping from hundreds into thousands,
and demand outstrips all possible production even now, only then does the
true worth of this fig appear and the magnitude of the discovery become ap-
parent to those interested in this branch of horticulture. 

The original tree of this variety, then a stranger, discovered and named
by Mr. Taft and afterward distributed, first appeared in an orchard grown
by Mr. Cyrus Way of Whittier, from cuttings furnished by Mr. Theo.
Hockett, from his orchard of Dottatos, which in turn was an orchard grown
from cuttings imported from Europe in 1887, by Mr. R. Thompson of Or-
ange County, California.

"Very good honey fig. Very sweet and juicy. Somewhat of a slow grower but producing a lot figs. When caprified the figs can be large over 100g but in general a medium size fruit. It’s a great fig to grow in CA."
