✨"If I should wish a fruit brought to Paradise it would certainly be the fig." - Prophet Mohammed✨ It really does feel like being in paradise when eating these tree ripened, sweet, soft, flavourful, nectar rich organic figs from my dads tree in the garden, hand-picked👌🏽. They have so much history and are highly revered around the world; Pliny, the Roman writer (52-113 AD) said, "Figs are restorative. They increase the strength of young people, preserve the elderly in better health and make them look younger with fewer wrinkles."👍🏽💪🏾. A member of the mulberry family. They have an opening called the "ostiole" or "eye", which is not connected to the tree, but which helps the fruit's development by increasing its communication with the environment....now that is cool!!
- Figs are super high in soluble and insoluble fibres; good for weight management and healthy cholesterol.
- Good source of potassium; a mineral which helps with blood pressure.
- Also a good source of B6, copper, manganese and pantothenic acid.😋
- Thank you God for creating such incredible beauty in this world, may you carry on loving us and may we learn to recognise and respect your indescribable wonder...your child...🙏🏽 xx
