Fresh and dried fig fruits

We tasted a few more varieties of fresh fig fruits lately from a local farm.  I was trying to get the names of these figs but she has forgotten which trees she plucked them from.  Vividly she could remember one of them is TGF (Taiwan Golden Fig).  The smallest one is cute and sweet.
 anyone can identify what varieties these figs are ?

During puasa month and with Ramadan approaching, there are aplenty of dried figs for sale in the supermarket.  Being first time buying dried figs, I chose the brand that I heard regularly on the radio, Yusuf Taiyoob. 
We have counted, there are 38 pieces of dried figs compactly packed in this round plastic container.  I really love the texture of these dried figs, not overly sweet.  I can have 4-5 pieces in a day as snack.  Although my girls much prefer the fresh ones but they do not mind having one or two the dried ones while waiting for our home grown fig trees to bear fruits in 3-4 months time..hopefully earlier. 


  1. I didn't even know there are named varieties of figs haha.

    Yep the tiny one is so cute.

    Oh well, back in my childhood, apples were either green or red only.

  2. I don't know how to identify the different variety of figs. I also bought exactly the same dried figs as you did. Very tasty natural sweetness.
