The Black Mission Fig has a dark, syrupy sweetness, without much acidity. It tends to be denser with more pronounced seeds, making it great for use in baking (if you can stop yourself from eating them all fresh). These figs' delicate skin may scar or flake a bit in transit, but trust that it's just a symptom of being picked at peak ripeness. You won't find a more delicious fig out there.
