Figs are the fruit of the ficus tree, which is part of the mulberry family (Moraceae).
- They have a unique, sweet taste, soft and chewy texture and are littered with slightly crunchy, edible seeds.
- Fresh figs are delicate and perishable, so are often dried to preserve them. This produces a sweet and nutritious dried fruit that can be enjoyed all year round.
- There are multiple varieties of fig, all of which vary widely in colour and texture.
- Their natural sweetness meant that, before the days of refined sugars, they were often used as a sweetener.

One of the world’s oldest trees, the fig tree can be traced back to the earliest historical documents and features prominently in the Bible. Figs are native to the Middle East and Mediterranean and were held in such high regard by the Greeks that laws were once created to prevent their export.
