Rick and Kristie Knoll are known for their amazing figs. They pick for flavor, not durability, which is key for a fruit like figs. 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.
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!
