I love fresh figs. My parents had a fig tree growing up. Dried figs, not a fan of them, my husband eats them.

I can't say I have seen "fresh" figs in any of the grocery stores near me. I may have to go to a grocer across town. They may have some as they sell more organic and whole foods.

I believe they are also high in fiber.

Do fig newtons count? LOL!!

I read that article earlier today and I am so happy to know this. I love figs! Eating one or two dried ones is as good a dessert as I ever have. Yum!

I have a beautiful fig tree that is loaded with fruit. Sure hope the birds leave a few for me to make preserves.

Thanks Becky. I love figs but I don't eat them often. I will make a conscious decision to eat more of them.
