We are thrilled with the results!

Figs are a wonderfully unique fruit, they are soft and sweet with a smooth skin, chewy flesh and are filled with tiny crunchy edible seeds. Fresh they have the shortest life span of all the fruits in the supermarket and once harvested they only last about a week. Because figs are so perishable the majority of them are dried, creating a nutritious dried fruit available throughout the year. 

Our Dried figs are from Greece where they are dried on the tree in the sun and picked and packaged in the same day with no extra processing. They are sweet, soft and chewy.
