Fig

(Ficus carica)

Rounded, oval or pear-shaped fruit, depending on the variety. Its ripe skin can adopt a pale yellow or green tone, or a tone between dark red and violet. The flesh varies in tone, ranging between pale pink and purple. It may have hardly any seeds or, on the other hand, it can contain over 1,600 seeds. The skin is edible, but this fruit is usually eaten without the skin.
