How to choose ripe figs

Figs are an under-appreciated fruit. They are quite tasty when you eat them whole, and they’re also incredibly versatile.

However, they are notoriously difficult to choose. The most common types include Bartlett, Black Mission, and Black Turkish.

While they are all delicious,knowingw which variety you should bu is hardy. For example, Bartlett is usually cheaper and easier to find. However, they don’t ripen until after the Black Mission and Turkish varieties.

This is where the “ripening chart” comes in handy. This handy infographic will help you choose the best fit for your needs.

The chart is based on a USDA survey that found that the Black Mission figs are ripest in late summer. The Black Turkish figs are ripe by early fall. Bartlett figs ripen between these dates. Bartlett figs are often picked when still green but become fully mature and delicious when they turn brownish-yellow. However, you should be aware that the chart is only an approximation. You might not find the perfect variety of figs at the supermarket.
