Julia Lowndes on 30/07/2012 at 2:32 pm Unlike Christine I eat figs alot, and these lovely ones look like some that I get locally, imported from Turkey and sometimes Chile…..I am guessing these are local to you, and they look good in this picture….. admin on 30/07/2012 at 8:43 pm Hi Julia and Anne, thanks for stopping by. they might be the same, these are white figs as the heart is surrounded by a white pulp, they are lovely, but the season has still to reach its summit with the arrival of the small figue violette at the end of August gorgeeous.
