A surprising and unexpected gift from a friend.
Two notable sized cases of fig!
They are from Jeollanam-do province, south-west of Korea. As far as I know, the region produces best figs in Korea along with Jeju-do.
They are good. Quite good, indeed. Coloured dominantly green, but tasted sweet.
When made as a conserve, hopefully as a preserve, it might be great with Foie gras and magret de canard in winter.
plant of the genus Ficus, of the mulberry family (Moraceae), especially Ficus carica, the common fig. Ficus carica, which yields the well-known figs of commerce, is indigenous to an area extending from Asiatic Turkey to northern India, but natural seedlings grow in most Mediterranean countries. It is a bush or small tree, from 1 m (3 feet) to 10 to 12 m (33 to 39 feet) high, with broad, rough, deciduous leaves that are deeply lobed or sometimes nearly entire.
