Here's a simple research about the fruit I've picked, 'Fig' : Fig is a species of flowering in the genus ficus, from the family Moraceae, known as the common fig. It is the source of the fruit also called the fig, and as such is an important crop in those areas where it is grown commercially. Native to the Middle East and western Asia, it has been sought out and cultivated since ancient times, and is now widely grown throughout the temperate world, both for its fruit and as an ornamental plant. Fig is one of the first plants that was cultivated by humans. Nine sub fossil figs of a parthencarpic (and therefore sterile) type dating to about 9400–9200 BC were found in the early neolithic village gilgal (in the Jordan valley, 13 km north of Jericho). Like all fig trees, Ficus caricarequires wasp pollination of a particular species of wasp to produce seeds. The plant can tolerate seasonal drought, and the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean climate is especially suitable for the plant.
When I cut opened the grit, I was surprised for a moment. The reason was because, honestly, the look of the fruit kind of looked gross. It looked like the inside of a dead insect. But still, I had to try it and I knew it was edible, I took a bite. Then, so different from my expectations, the fruit tasted really sweet. It wasn't really sweet like watermelon or bananas, but it was a different kind of sweetness with a little bitterness at the end of the taste. The fruit inside my mouth gave me a weird feeling because of all the small seeds, but eventually, I was happy to know a new taste of a new fruit.
If someone told me to cook a dish with this plate, I would try to keep the sweetness of the fruit, but try to reduce the little bitterness at the end. So what I want to try is to dry the fig for a long time, and make it into a tea. I am really excited by these thoughts and I want to try real soon!
