The Top 5 Mediterranean Fruits

Not only are figs traditional in Mediterranean cuisine, but they are in ever-increasing demand around the world.

Figs are often dried or preserved in jams, because fresh figs are very delicate and don’t last long at room temperature. These are also the reasons that figs don’t travel well. Because they are so perishable, if you buy them fresh, keep them refrigerated and eat them within a couple of days.

Figs, whether fresh or dried, can be a sweet addition to any diet; they also add Mediterranean flair to dishes.
