Fig History and Information

Figs are a fruit just like grapes or olives. And like these other fruits, figs have been around since the first days of man. The fig is the most mentioned fruit in the Bible.

Figs have been an important export item since olden days. The wealth that figs brought to farmers was immense. The word "sycophant" literally meant "to show the fig", and referred to someone trying to please another person by plying them with money.

There are many different types of figs, each with its own flavor style. If the only fig you've tried is in a fig neuton candy, it's time to sample some real figs! The richness of their flavor will astound you.
