Fig fruits are one-of-a-kind fruits that resemble the shape of a teardrop. They’re roughly the size of a thumb, with hundreds of tiny seeds and an edible purple or green peel. The fruit’s pink flesh has a mild, sweet flavour. 

The fig fruit was one of the first fruits to be planted. Its cultivation extended through ancient times, throughout the Levant and the Aegean Sea region. History says that Caria gave this fruit to the Greeks. Interestingly, the Attic figs were famous in the East, and there were special laws to control its export. Nevertheless, the fig fruit was one of the most significant foods for the Greeks, and it was prevalent during public feasts among the Spartans. In Latin mythology, the fig tree that overshadowed the twin founders of Rome in the wolf’s cave was a sign of the race’s future wealth.
