Figs

OriginTurkey, Greece, USA
Harvesting timeAugust / September
GrowthOn the fig tree
ProcessingDrying in boxes or on open plains in the orchard
Shelf lifeAt least one year after production
In spring the trees are in full bloom, after fertilisation the blossoms will grow into figs. The figs that are being gathered continually throughout the harvesting period need only be collected because they fall from the tree of their own accord. One fig tree will yield 10 to 15 kilograms of fruit per year.

Drying process
After being gathered, the figs dry in special cases filled with reed so that air may circulate. Drying also takes place on specially cleaned and hardened open places in the middle of the orchard. This drying process lasts three to four days. Figs packed in sacks are sent to factories for further processing.  

On arrival at the factory the figs are washed in a centrifugal machine, constantly refreshing the water to which salt has been added. Subsequently the figs are checked piece by piece in a dark room with UV light, so that an excellent product remains. Before being packed manually (also the consumer packaging) the figs are sorted by size and divided into ten categories. These numbers indicate the number of figs per kilo. Categories 03 to 06 are in greatest demand. Figs are also available in for instance cubes, pieces and paste.
