Figs are a small to medium fruit, they have a round to teardrop shape. The fruit’s skin is smooth, and lightly ribbed, ranging in color from red-purple, purple-blue, to dark purple, and displays a small opening at the base of the fruit covered by brown scales. Figs have a hollow vessel containing a mass of tiny flowers. Underneath the thick skin, the flowers are enveloped in a spongy pale green flesh and have a variegated ruby red to pink hue, speckled with golden-beige seeds. Figs are fleshy, sticky, and tender with an aqueous, crunchy, and melting-like texture. The figs release a fragrant fruity and floral aroma and contain high sugar content mixed with acidity, contributing to the fruit’s sweet, balanced flavor. Figs have a distinct jammy, sugary, tangy, and honeyed taste. Figs are an excellent source of potassium, fiber, and calcium. The fruits also provide vitamin C, vitamin A, and other nutrients, including iron, phosphorus, vitamins K and B6, copper, and magnesium.
