Sweet yet mild, mellow yet rich…Black Mission Figs deserve their reputation as the most consistently delicious fresh fig available. While they have a flavor all their own, the taste could be described as a mix of strawberry, melon and banana flavors, with a pleasantly jammy, creamy texture.

Figs can be enjoyed just as they are, or prepared and cooked. They make an excellent addition to cheese platters and a welcome addition to salads with spicy greens. They are wonderful for homemade jams and preserves as well as cakes and muffins. Stuff figs with cheese or ham, or slice and include in grilled cheese sandwiches. Dip in chocolate for a luscious treat.

Select Black Mission Figs that smell fresh and are fairly soft. Ripen at room temperature or spread in a single layer on paper towels, cover with plastic and refrigerate for a few days. Figs may also be sealed in a plastic bag and frozen for up to six months.
