DRIED FIGS

Dried Figs are grouped under the dried fruits and nuts family. This product initially originated in western Asia however it later increased in the Mediterranean. Figs come from a tree, which is called “Ficus Carica” . A dry and hot temperature is required geographically for this plant to grow and mature. The important point which must be considered in fig’s drying technique is to let fruits semi-dried on the fig tree and allow it to fall naturally. Picking fresh fig for drying could reduce final quality of product.
