This item was last sold on : 08/18/21
The matured Black Mission fig "fruit" has a tough outer skin peel, green at the stem end giving way to deep purple. It often cracks near the stem end upon ripeness, exposing the pulp beneath. The soft creamy white interior contains a seed mass bound with jelly-like flesh. The edible seeds are numerous and generally hollow and crunchy, unless pollinated. Pollinated seeds provide the characteristic nutty taste of dried figs.
Black Mission figs are available in the summer and fall.
Figs grow on the Ficus tree (Ficus carica), which is a member of the Mulberry family. There are almost two hundred cultivars of figs and range in shape, color and texture. The common fig bears a first crop, called the breba crop, in the spring on last season's growth. The second crop is born in the fall on the new growth and is known as the main crop. Figs are botanically an inverted flower. Each fig is not a single fruit, but nearly fifteen hundred tiny fruits. Figs made their first commercial product appearance with the 1892 introduction of Fig Newtons® Cookies. These Black Mission figs come from Scott Farms in Dinuba, CA.
