Would you look at the size of these figs! They come from Gonzalo, our next door neighbour, who thinks he's feeding a family of 10. Two evenings ago he came round with a strawberry box full of figs. If they're not eaten within half a day they are unedible, but if we ate all that he gives, we'd never get out of the loo! They really are delicious and very more-ish, but there is a limit, eh.
Ours are growing but they're the late-ripening variety - sometime in the Autumn, I think. We have black and green figs and will welcome their eventual arrival when many other fresh fruits are finished.
