Fig season

figs

We had these for many of our meals last week when summer did not want to leave us.  And to think that we’ve only found out about how delicious figs are about 7 years ago.  It still took us a year or 2 before we actually realised what we’ve been missing.  The only fig we knew before was this.  It’s name suggests it is a fig product but it taste nothing like figs…maybe just the skin of figs?

Here are a few more pictures of the figs and leaves.  Any fig experts out there can tell what variety it is?  The description of the monstrueuse fig is quite close but I’ve not come across any pictures that look like ours.
