[Seasonal fruit] Fig
A fig is written as a fruit without a flower, but strictly speaking, the part that we recognize as a fig fruit is the flower.
When you cut it, the part that looks grainy is the flower.
However, the flower is not visible from the outside, and it is said that it was named fig fruit because it looks like it does not bloom.
The original place of origin is said to be southern Arabia, where ancient civilization flourished, and the forbidden fruit that appears in the legend of Adam and Eve is a fig.
From this, we can see that it has been closely related to humans since ancient times.
Foreign products are mainly from Turkey and are sold in a dry state.
The season is from August to October, and there are varieties that bear fruit in the summer and autumn.
It contains potassium and antioxidant polyphenols, so it is said to be good for beauty and skin quality improvement.
