hmmm, were they labeled adriatic? or are they just green figs. adriataics are incredibly fragile you rarely see them at retail. there are other green figs, some of them pretty good, such as calimyrna.

yes they are! no shame in that.
it's kind of amazing that 5 years ago fresh figs were almost impossible to find outside of a farmers market. now they're in trader joe's!

foodguy, I take it there's basically no chance that we'd have the Adriatic variety here in the northeast? I don't really look because I've constantly been disappointed by the quality of the figs (not terribly surprising) here...seems like you're lucky if even half of them are good in a batch. My family has an apartment in Calabria and you can just walk into the backyard and pick figs off the trees. They're amazing. Wonder if they're Adriatic.

there are hundreds, if not thousands, of varieties of figs and, quite frankly, almost all of them are delicious. (there's a fig germplasm repository at the UC Wolfskill site .. I spent an afternoon there tasting probably 3-4 dozen varieties and that was just what was ripe at that time).
figs really do need warmth, but they can grow in surprising places. i had good friends in Albuquerque New Mexico (5,000 feet, tough winters), that kept a fig tree by planting it next to the house against a south-facing wall to trap the sun's heat.

It was very nice. I enjoyed the part where the Bras family went to a local "festival" and Roellinger, Troisgros and Gagnaire were there, too.

@ac21686: That's great. I remember when we visited friends on Lanzarote and there were two trees of figs, "purple" and green ones, full of perfectly ripe fruits. And of course the mango tree. drool.gif

This $4 individually wrapped department store Japanese white peach isn't bad. Maybe I should've tried a $9 one.

I had a $9 apple from Isetan that was kind of disappointing. You should go all out and get a $200 watermelon.
