We escape the early summer heat by wandering under the massive fig tree in the backyard, reaching for the bursting purple figs hanging close to our fingertips…
Sweet, sticky juices run everywhere. Laughing, we pick as many as we can for the delicious fig jam I’m going to make later. Try our luscious early summer figs. Perfect with a cool summer salad, or perhaps try as a delightful finish to your ideal luncheon.
Now is the time to get them from this third-generation orchard owned by a Simone family member who brought figs to America in the 1920s.
First Crop (July) is a short season lasting about two weeks. Figs are teardrop in shape with thin black skin and a reddish flesh. Sweeter than honey these larger figs are the cream of the crop. Second crop is more abundant, but smaller and round in shape (August). Blacks are good shipping figs that ripen with time are available sometimes through November depending on weather conditions.
