Description


FRESH FIG EXOTIC FRUIT

Fig “fruit” has a tough peel (in this case, green giving way to deep purple), often cracking near the stem end upon ripeness, and exposing the pulp beneath. The soft creamy white interior contains a seed mass bound with jelly-like flesh. The edible seeds are numerous and generally hollow unless pollinated. Pollinated seeds provide the characteristic nutty taste of dried figs.

Availability

Figs are available in early spring through early winter. Beginning in winter, night temperatures drop causing a change in the fruit’s texture and the fig is no longer at its best for culinary use. The interior of the fig becomes woody and dry, and the seeds begin to separate from the flesh.

Current Facts

Figs grow on the Ficus tree (Ficus carica), which is a member of the Mulberry family. There are almost two hundred cultivars of figs, thus they grow in a wide range of shapes, colors, and textures. The common fig bears the first crop, called the breba crop, in the spring on last season’s growth. The second crop is born in the fall on the new growth and is known as the main crop. Figs are botanically an inverted flower. Each fig is not a single fruit, but nearly fifteen hundred tiny fruits.

Applications

When Figs are blended with savory ingredients, such as salt, cocoa, and spices, figs can produce a “meaty” flavor that has a smoky, almost steak-like aroma and taste. Chop fresh figs and thyme, then fold into the olive oil-based cake batter and bake. Whip blue cheese and heavy cream, the pipe into halved figs, top with toasted hazelnuts and serve as an appetizer. Saute roasted beets and quartered figs in honey and balsamic vinegar, then toss with arugula and serve as a salad.

10 Reasons to eat figs every day

Figs rich in nutrients. Here’s how they help you stay healthy.

Image result for eating figs

Figs are one of the earliest fruits grown by man. Though figs are not available throughout the year, dried figs (popularly known as anjeer in India) are. Not only is dried fig tasty to eat, it has numerous health benefits to offer as well.

Improves digestion: Fig is rich in dietary fiber. 3 pieces of dried figs contain 5 grams of fiber, which accounts for about 20% of our daily requirement. It’s a natural laxative for preventing constipation and other digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Helps in weight loss: Apart from being rich in fiber, figs are low in calories. One piece of fig gives you just 47 calories. And, you obtain only 0.2 grams of total fat per fig. So, figs are an ideal for people who want to lose weight.

Prevents hypertension: When you eat more salt, the level of sodium increases. This disturbs the sodium-potassium balance and in turn, results in hypertension. Fig is an ideal fruit for to restore this balance. One dried fig gives you 129mg of potassium and just 2mg of sodium. This helps prevent hypertension.

Rich in antioxidants: Figs are rich in antioxidants. A study [1] by Vinson JA and colleagues suggested that processed, dried figs are superior to natural figs when it comes to antioxidants. The study also mentions that dried figs have a superior quality of antioxidants, called phenols, compared to other fruits that attribute their antioxidant property to vitamin C and E.

Prevents heart disease: The high levels of antioxidants in figs help to eliminate free radicals that can damage blood vessels and result in heart disease. And, as mentioned earlier, they prevent hypertension, a huge risk factor for the development of coronary heart disease (CHD). Plus, there are some studies which suggest that dried figs help to reduce the levels of triglycerides that contribute greatly to heart disease.

Prevents cancer: Antioxidant-rich dried figs also help in preventing cellular DNA damage due to free radicals that can make a cell cancerous.

Strengthens your bones: One dried fig gives you 3% calcium of your daily calcium requirement. Along with other calcium-rich foods, they can help to improve bone density and strength.

Good for diabetes: The high fiber content in figs makes them good for people with diabetes. However, dried figs are high in sugar content. So you should consult a diabetologist about the quantity of dried fig you can consume.

Cures iron-deficiency anemia: Dried figs are a rich source of iron. One dried fig can give you 2% of your daily iron requirement. Iron is an important mineral that carries hemoglobin throughout your body. So eating anjeer is a natural way to raise your hemoglobin levels indirectly by increasing the levels of iron in your body.

Improves reproductive health: According to ancient literature, the Greeks used fig as a natural aphrodisiac. Figs were considered sacred fruit and were closely associated with fertility and love. Scientifically, figs improve fertility and libido because they are loaded with minerals like zinc, manganese, and magnesium which play an important role in boosting reproductive health.
