Figs, Black Mission, Diced - 1 lb.


Black Mission Figs are a black - bluish fig containing extremely small seeds. The diced pieces are about 1/4 in size. This fruit is a good source of iron, calcium and phosphorus. Figs have a firm flesh and soft inside. Black Mission Figs are sweeter and smaller than Calimyrna Figs. The best time for Figs is November-January. This is when the new crop has been harvested, and the figs keep their shiny bluish-black color. The rest of the year, the Figs are considered old crop. These old crop Figs will crystallize with sugar, making them appear white, almost moldy on the outside. However, the Figs themselves are not contaminated in any way. During the off-months, expect Figs to crystallize within 2-4 weeks after purchase.

Suggested Use:
Figs, like all dried fruit are great as a snack food. Figs are delicious in gourmet desserts like cookies, baked apples, rice and bread pudddings. Adds them to fruit salads, compotes, pie and cake fillings.
