The Fig by Ira J Condit

fig 03THE FIG: A Fruit of Ancient Origin! Here we feature an amazing 1947 publication  – not intended to be a textbook or manual on practical fig culture, but a loving ode to the large, deciduous shrub or small tree native to southwest Asia and the eastern Mediterranean region. One of the first plants cultivated by humans, figs are one of the highest plant sources of calcium and fiber. A key player in Greek Mythology, the Bible and the Quran. AND HOW ABOUT THAT LUSCIOUS INTERIOR??? There’s just so much to love about the fig. Come explore with us!
