One unit in a container is permitted to possess “minor" or "major" defects, if such unit exceeds the respective allowances of 20 percent, or 10 percent, by count: Provided, That in all containers comprising the sample such units possessing “minor" and “major" defects do not exceed an average of 20 percent of the total number of units including not more than an average of 10 percent of the total number of units that may possess “major" defects.

(e) (C) classification. If the canned Kadota figs are fairly free from defects, a score of 21 to 23 points may be given. Canned Kadota figs that fall into this classification shall not be graded above U.S. Grade C or U.S. Standard, regardless of the total score for the product (this is a limiting rule).

(1) To score in this classification:

(i) In Style I, Whole, not more than 20 percent, by count, of the units may be split (or broken): Provided, That not more than 5 percent, by count, of the units may be severed figs.

(a) General. Under the factor of character, consideration is given to the degree of ripeness, the texture and condition of the flesh, the firmness and tenderness of the canned fig, and its tendency to retain its apparent original conformation and size without material disintegration.

(b) (A) classification. Canned Kadota figs that possess a good character may be given a score of 27 to 30 points. Good character". means that the canned Kadota figs are well matured and fleshy and have a practically uniform, tender texture; that not more than 5 percent, by count, of the figs may possess a reasonably good character; and none possess a fairly good character.

(c) (B) classification. If the canned Kadota figs possess a reasonably good character, a score of 24 to 26 points may be given. “Reasonably good character" means that the canned Kadota figs have a reasonably uniform, reasonably tender texture; and that not more than 10 percent, by count, of the figs may possess a fairly good character.

(d) (C) classification. If the canned Kadota figs possess a fairly good character, a score of 21 to 23 points may be given. Canned Kadota figs that fall into this classification shall not be graded above U.S. Grade C or U.S. Standard, regardless of the total score for the product (this is a limiting rule). “Fairly good character" means that the canned Kadota figs may be variable in texture from very soft to firm but are not excessively mushy nor excessively firm.
