I’ll never forget hot-air ballooning in Cappadocia Turkey, and slowly lowering down to pick a fresh fig from a Ficus tree. One bite and the romance of this trip intensified tenfold. There is nothing quite like the unique taste of a ripe, fresh fig. The slight snap when biting into its skin, its juicy flesh,the crunch of tiny seeds, and its seductively sweet flavor – a true exotic delight!
