Factoid

The black mission fig received its name from the occasion of Franciscan monks bringing the fruit to California in the mid 1700s. They are deep purple in hue, but turn black when dried. For people trying to reduce their fat intake, figs are an appropriate staple as they do not contain fat yet provide fibre and a wide variety of nutrients.
