Kadota Fig

Kadota figs are yellowish-green in color, with skin resembling a watermelon in design.  Their interior flesh is an amber color, full of edible seed-looking flowers. These figs are extremely sweet and eat very well out of hand, canned, jammed, or dried.  Also known as the Italian Dattato, the fig pairs excellently with cheeses and salty meats like proscuitto or pancetta. These figs are famous for being used as teh filling in Fig Newton cookies.
