We bought our first Fig tree from the tamu place last weekend. I first heard about fig trees from my colleague last year whom is a facebook fan of one of the local fig farm. She told me that both the fig seedlings and fruits are expensive but the demand is good despite of the price.
Fig is a nutritious fruit contains minerals, vitamins and fiber, vitamin A, B1, B2, Calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, sodium, potassium & chlorine. It is good to control and lower blood sugar level. With that reason, we try to plant fig tree at home. We bought a small plant in a poly bag and transplanted it to a pot with the soil mixture recommended by the nursery.

We also bought a packet of 6 pieces figs fruit (RM16.90 for 160gm) from the local mini market. Marking our first time trying fresh fig fruits.
