Black Mission Figs
When Black Mission Figs are blended with savory ingredients, such as salt, cocoa and spices, figs can produce a “meaty” flavor that has a smoky, almost steak-like aroma and taste.
Rambutan is best eaten fresh. To prepare, cut or tear base of fruit; press out the translucent pulpy flesh.

Stem strawberries are available year round.
Strawberries are botanically known as Fragaria x ananassa and are members of the Rosaceae family. Strawberries are actually botanically not a berry, rather they are the greatly enlarged stem end of the plant's flower. There are hundreds of varieties of strawberries, each displaing unique attributes, growing capacities, flavor profiles, resistance to disease, size shape and coloring. Specific varieties are grown for Stem strawberry production. These varieties produce large, sweet berries. Runners, the long, leafless stems between the mother plant, produce the Stem strawberries, which are carefully cut by hand in order to leave a long stem on the strawberry.
Stem strawberries are readily distinguished by several characteristics. All Stem strawberries must be uniform in size, color, shape and ripeness and of course, maintain a two-inch stem. They are plump and voluptuous, heart shaped, deep ruby red in color, succulent and depending on variety, candy sweet with a perfect hint of tartness.
Stem strawberries are meant to be served whole and intact. The quintessential application for Stem strawberries is chocolate covered. They can also be placed atop tarts and cakes. The fruit can be cored and stuffed with truffles, cream cheese, chevre and fruit compotes. Complimentary pairings include stonefruits such as peaches and cherries, rhubbarb, vanilla, white chocolate, lavender, thyme, pineapple, banana, caramel, coconut, mascarpone, and heavy cream.
There are species of strawberry native to temperature regions all around the world. Yet, it was the union of two species native to the Americas that gave us the garden strawberry, hence cultivated strawberries are actually a hybrid. Fragaria virginiana, native to North America, was taken from the New World to France in 1624. Fragaria chiloensis, a wild species of strawberry native to Chile, was also taken to France in 1712. Both species were widely grown in European gardens. Chance seedlings representing crosses between the two species resulted in the modern cultivated strawberry, Fragaria x ananassa. There are three types of modern strawberry cultivars: June-bearing, Everbearing and Day-neutral. June-bearing strawberries are harvested in June, Everbearing strawberries thrive in hotter climates, while Day-neutral strawberries do not respond to day length, rather they flower and fruit for about five months.
