Tiger Stripe Figs

Tiger stripe figs get their name from the streaking patterns on their skin. A paragon of beauty and taste, these delicate fruits have a flavorful blood-red flesh with a flavor reminiscent of candy. Their teardrop shape makes them distinguishable from other varieties. In a blind taste test, these figs are usually favored the most. For optimal growing, the fruit needs to be in an envionment in which the temperature is warm for a long period of time, regularly exceeding 95°F. Try these scrumptious treats in jams, or as fillings for cookies. They top ice cream or cheesecake woderfully and pair well with strong cheeses.  Like other figs, they are perfectly good eaten out of hand as well.
