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).
Figs trees produce two harvests. This is the first harvest, known as the breba crop, and it should last a month or so, before the trees focus their energy on the second, generally larger crop. The first harvest isn't always as sweet, but these figs are still a delicious treat!
When none of the local farms we work with have Organic Black Mission FIgs, we work with trusted distributors to source the freshest product for us.
