Black Figs – Late but still welcome


Saturday 13 June, 2015 by Uncle Spike

The green figs never happened at all this season, which is strange as they are a native crop that grow wild around here. We had a few, but most just dropped early. However, the black figs are now starting to grow at last. Black figs are always a month or two later than the green; making an early autumn snack before it’s the turn of the pomegranates. In the next two to three months, these will hopefully grow to be 5-8cm (2-3″) in diameter, before turning a darker purple shade as they ripen…

  2. I do not believe I have ever eaten a fig outside of a Fig Newton cookie. Welcome to America.

    Figs are a huge delicacy here. And like most of the things that grow there, very pricy here.

    In my ignorance, I always assumed that black figs were the more ripened version of the green variety, which just goes to illustrate what a cretinous city-dwelling piece of rubbish I truly am. Thanks for the enlightenment 🙂
