Since ancient times, figs have been considered a delicacy, and fig leaves are an iconic part of art history dating back thousands of years. But it’s not the leaves we’re after here at PlantLife, but the fruits themselves, which have an incredible flavour and wonderful nutritional makeup, making figs one of nature’s healthiest and most delicious fruits.
Figs are part of the mulberry family and are the fruit of the beautiful Fictus tree. They have a sweet taste, chewy texture, and crunchy, edible seeds. We wanted to preserve the natural flavour and goodness of figs in a form that makes them easy to eat, any time, anywhere – our premium dried figs were born.
Like other PlantLife products, we like to think our figs are a bit more special than your average fig. Ours are impressively large, dark, and naturally sweet, with a wonderful fruity taste and aura of premium quality that will send other figs running for cover.
The fruits ripen on organic trees in the mountains of southern Turkey. When ready, they are picked and carefully sun-dried to preserve their natural flavour – the perfect healthy snack. 100% natural, unsweetened and unsulphured, we make sure those dried figs get to you just how nature intended.
Figs are a very healthy fruit, containing magnesium, calcium, potassium, and B vitamins, as well as loads of fiber. Scientists have shown that these nutrients support nervous system functioning, cell division and overall health.
Drying figs allows them to be stored and used as a natural snack, in baking, or added to salads.
