my first fresh fig! yes its my first taste of a fig. i know its rather unbelievable that i have yet to try a fig till now. but its just not that common here in singapore. i think (since its fig season now, i did try to find some in jason supermarket today and they dont have!!).
i got these figs during the ramandan and from ntuc too (i know. i am surprised too). these babies were not cheap – S$5.95 for 4 pieces. to be honest, they were pretty worth it if you have yet to try fig. the taste is sweet, jammy, and just melt in your mouth. i would say the texture is closer to a date (though i intially thought it would taste more like a plum). i quite like the seeds as they provide that much needed crunch for this delicious fruit.
