If you've never had candy striped figs, you truly haven't lived. The insides are magenta and are even more amazing than their striped outsides - bright magenta and glisteny. They're the most glorious of all the figs!
Too bad I ruined this pint by trying to hide them from fruit flies. Sigh. I may have missed my one shot for the season to enjoy them. Also, effing fruit flies are my nemesis right now. They're all flying around my kitchen and I'm all "CAN YOU NOT?!"
