An ex-classmate has his own fig orchard and when he came visiting, I tasted my very first fresh fig. All this while, I just had the preserved ones.
As advised by my friend, the small fruit was cut into half. Then, using a spoon, the red, juicy flesh was scooped out and eaten. It was sweet and succulent, and it would be best if you mix it with vanilla ice cream.

Even the locally grown figs are quite expensive, a kilogramme of this exotic fruit could be approximately RM100. There are more people planting fig trees in Malaysia these days, and hopefully I could get one for my house too.
