Fresh figs should be plump and fairly soft when ripe. Avoid figs that are damaged from rough handling.
Short-term storage recommendation (7 days or less)
Fresh figs are susceptible to freeze damage. For best quality, do not store below 28° F/-2° C.
Rough handling may cause ripe figs to burst; keep handling to a minimum.
Intensely sweet, honey-like flavor.
Figs have very thin, edible skins; the flesh is very grainy due to the many tiny seeds inside.
Pair with blue cheese, honey, nuts, and prosciutto.
