Description

At Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruit, we’re proud to bring fresh figs to you. Calimyrna Figs, also known as Sierra Figs, become high in fiber and high in honey taste when dried. Calimyrna and California sound very similar.

About Our Bulk Calimyrna Figs

Many ancient cultures consider Fig trees to be sacred. These include ancient Greece, Egypt, Rome, China, and many more. Figs have been long hailed as a paradise fruit.  In many fables and religious texts, figs are referenced as the fruit of the heavens. Figs are also known as the only fruit that fully ripens and dries right on the tree. As a consequence of the word ‘Calimyrna’ sounding just like ‘California’, you will find both of these words in use to describe the same, exact fig.
