White figs grow on ficus trees that can grow up to 6 meters tall. They have thin tender skins and can range from beige or yellow to pale green. Some White fig varieties may have streaks of green running vertically down the fruit. The interior flesh is soft and chewy, laden with tiny edible seeds that pop and crunch. Younger fruits are leaner in flavor, lower in sugar content and the flesh is generally more cottony in texture with a less jellied seed cavity. The flesh tastes like candied strawberries and raspberries.
Various varieties of White figs are available in the summer and fall.
White figs are scientifically known as Ficus carica, and are related to the mulberry. Botanically each White fig is an inverted flower, not a single fruit, but nearly fifteen hundred tiny fruits. There are almost two hundred cultivars of figs, thus they grow in a wide range of shapes, colors and textures. White figs are not entirely white, but are paler in color and more floral in flavor. Some named varieties of White figs are Adriatic, Excel and Kadota.
White figs are a good source of dietary fiber, which is beneficial for a healthy digestive system. All figs are high in potassium, calcium, iron and vitamins A, B6, and C. Drying figs will increase the protein and fiber content of the fruit.
