Figment of the Figurehead

Following Figuring the Figurative, the post about Opuntia ficus-indica or Tuna/“thorny figs”, here is one about another yummy fruit from this side of the world: the common fig (Ficus carica). Simply known as fig, this Asian species of flowering plant is part of the mulberry family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While it’s native to the Middle East and western Asia, it has been naturalised in various locations across Asia and North America and now is cultivated throughout the globe — for its fruits as well as an ornamental plant. In 1880, they were introduced to California where they eventually thrived due to its Mediterranean climate

The term fig originates from the Latin word, ficus, as well as the older Hebrew name, feg. The name of the caprifig (Ficus caprificus Risso) is derived from Latin, with capro referring to billygoat and ficus referring to fig. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As previously mentioned, in Arabic it’s called ( تين ) — spelled like ‘teen’; with full name ( تين برشومي ). The ones seen here are Egyptian and they are delightfully mouthwatering. Apparently Egypt is number two in world production of raw figs after Turkey and before Algeria. Together these three nations account for 58% of the world’s total. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
An unexplainable thing happened a few days ago when I got some and took photos of them. After I was done I removed the memory card from the camera and inserted it into the laptop to begin editing. I was interrupted by a call from my cousins at the pub and ended up joining them. After a long hazy night, the next day I checked the laptop and the photos were nowhere to be found, not even on the memory card. Also the fruits have all been nom nom nommed. Hmm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having that photo set in my mind already, today I got more figs to shoot then eat. I didn’t want them to be too ripe as they can get slightly squashed when they are; those look more full and “ready for the camera”. Photoshoot successfully recreated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
