Do you know when you enjoy fig consumption you actually enjoy the flower?
More precisely, the fig tree is actually a flower, but it is eaten as a fruit. For millennia, figs are part of a typical healthy Mediterranean diet.
The figs have a very short breeding season and are extremely sensitive. Therefore, they are most enjoyable if eaten immediately after picking up, after a short time spent in the fridge. Although fresh figs are available only a few months a year, you can enjoy dry figs throughout the year. Unlike other fruits, figs cannot be picked unripe and left to ripen later because figs, once harvested, no longer ripen. Therefore, to eat fresh figs, you need to be in Mediterranean countries like Croatia during the fig season.
