Melissa’s Brown Turkey Figs are a true favorite that have withstood the test of time. The exterior is a beautiful purple brown in color with a greenish color surrounding the stem.  The interior of the Brown Turkey Fig is amber.  The pulp is an amber color and it has a very mild flavor.  

Figs are wonderful dried, still very moist and tasty. They are probably one of the first fruits to be dried and stored by man and were noted to have existed as early as 2000 BC.   Figs have definitely made their place in history and can be considered the most ancient of all fruits!  Enjoy the mild taste of Brown Turkey Figs by themselves, sliced on sandwiches, chopped and added to rice, stuffed with cream cheese or as a side dish cut in half.

Avoid hard, dry figs. Select Brown Turkey Figs that are fresh smelling and fairly soft. Ripen at room temperature or lay a single layer on paper towels, cover with plastic and refrigerate a few days. Figs may also be sealed in a plastic bag and frozen for up to six months.
