Figs? The only way we get figs here is in a bar like a candy bar called a "Fig Bar." They have a soft cookies around the fig. They are delicious. I suppose you might be able to buy them in jars or cans but I have never seen them. To see them growing on a tree would be a real treat.
My grandparents had a fig tree. I was never really fond of figs but do like Fig Newtons!
for Tanya:I looked up in Wikipedia what these FIG NEWTONS are!!! I agree: I like the biscuits more than the fruits too. Anyway I always like eating fruit directly from the tree: it tastes better!
for Abraham: I wonder ... why don't you have fig trees?
Figs are sold fresh in the supermarkets here, but only for the past ten years or so. I ate my first fresh fig forty years ago in Turkey, so I didn't know its English name. Now I love them fresh and look forward to the two harvests - June, and then September/October. The trees grow well here in parts of California, but for Abraham they would not grow in Ohio. I also remember learning that the fig fruit we eat is really a flower!
