Fig

Ficus carica

A perfectly ripe fresh fig is a delicacy to enjoy and share -- if you can part with some of your prized crop. Native to the Mediterranean region, figs thrive in long, hot, dry summers but are easy to grow in the landscape or in pots and will often regenerate if they freeze to the ground.
