FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Today, figs finally get their moment in the spotlight. Check out these fun fig facts!

Fun Fact #1: Technically, figs aren't fruits! They're inverted flowers! We still count them as fruits thanks to their nutrient and fiber content, but technically, a bunch of figs could be part of a bouquet!

Fun Fact #2: Figs vary widely in appearance. Most figs have purple or green skins with yellow flesh and seeds, but others can have white or black skins. And the flesh inside can be any color from white to deep red.

Fun Fact #3: There are over 1,400 different species of fig trees all over the world!
