Closed pollinations between caprifigs containing percentages of Calimyrna fig genome and a range of Calimyrna female figs were performed in 1991. Some 17 advanced selections were placed in three test plots in 1995 for evaluation in 1998. Additional crosses were done in 1992 using the female cultivar Tena as the female parent and the persistent caprifig D3-11 with 50% Calimyrna genome as the pollen parent.
