Fico delizioso!

Behold burgundy beauties. Every summer our fig tree provides naturally organic eats for friends, neighbors and relatives. Birds and squirrels share in the bounty as there is always enough to go around. Our tree is the progeny of a twig brought from Italy by the Ozellos who immigrated to Ohio in the early 1900's. Their great-granddaughter immigrated to North Carolina in the 1980's, brought a twig and shared with us. Fresh figs are a mild, sweet fruit very unlike dried figs. Having a fig friend is a good thing making for free good eats. Adoro la cucina italiana!
