Friendly Friday Foodie Photo: Fresh local figs

Figs are a natural fit for Northeast Florida because of their heat-loving, Mediterranean origins. They’re also a boon for health-conscious foodies because along with a fresh, sweet taste that ripens into velvet when preserved, they’re full of fiber and a multitude of cancer-fighting phytonutrients and vitamins.

Figs are just beginning to size up here, so be on the lookout for fresh local figs soon.

Here are some Brown Turkey figs growing in our own gardens.
