General information

The fig tree belongs to the family Moraceae, genus Ficus, species Ficus carica which is divided into two sub-species: Ficus carica sativa (domestic fig) and Ficus carica caprificus (Capri fig or wild fig). It is a drought-resistant plant that grows in the same areas as grape-vines, olive and citrus trees. It does not survive temperatures below 10°C and is damaged by stagnant water and cold, deep soils rich in organic matter.

Health Benefits

Figs contain iron and calcium and they are a significant source of fibre and have a regulating effect on the intestine. Figs are rich in vitamins and contain vitamin A and vitamin C, iron, potassium and fibre, all this in even greater amount in the dried form. The organoleptic, energetic and nutritional properties found in the fresh fig are notably increased in the drying of the fig as a result of the concentration process.
