I am constantly amazed at how many people have never actually seen a fig. Considering how popular Fig Newtons are, I find that hard believe. In any event, my father has a few fig trees and we had a bumper crop this year. I was happy I actually got to pick some this year. Usually they come in the week after I leave for seminary in the fall. Not this time...mmmm, boy. I bit into one particularly juicy one as you can see. The insides of figs are really weird looking.
