Food of the month – August- The Fig


Ficus carica – the real fig – is one of the oldest crop plants, which is cultivated and appreciated throughout the whole Mediterranean region. Also on the island the roundish fruit is known as one of the most famous fruits, which is sweetening up the ending summer. Depending on its type, the fig is either light green until dark violet and on the inside always juicily red. Majorca has the ideal climate for the fig tree, which needs warm summers and mild winters.
