Fig - Celeste

Ficus carica

Also known as the sugar fig, the pastel pink flesh has a rich, honey sweet flavour and a speckled appearance. The smooth skin is light brown to violet and the fruit is a classic fig shape with a tapering neck and a squat bottom. Its closed eye prevents fruit rot from moisture or insects which are unable to enter the fruit. When fully ripe and ready to pick the fruit will begin to droop and the skin may split.
Other Names: Sugar fig, Blue Celeste, Celestial
