Are Figs Good Sources for Minerals? - Health and Medicine 18

Fig 01- Figs fruits, ready to consume

We have a figs tree in our backyard for 3 years, the height no more than 3 feet (1 meter).

It is because our figs tree leaves are favorite to wild animals, hence, the tree has almost no leaves.

Actually, there are plenty of figs fruit in the market, both groceries and traditional (farmer) markets.

Some people find “difficulty” to consume figs, because of its skin. But the fruit contains highly of:

- natural sugars

- minerals

- soluble fibre

Its has higher sugar content. A couple of medium size figs has 16 gram of sugar. Other fruits with higher sugar content are manggo, grapes, cherries, banana, watermelon and pears.

  1. I don't think I've ever tasted fresh figs. We have them in ethnic shops but they are dried. Dried figs and dates belong to our Xmas foods here in Finland. 🇫🇮 So nive that you have a fig tree 💕

  6. Tanza, Fresh figs are fairly rare here in East Tennessee but we do like the dried variety. Also, we keep a box of fig newtons on hand as a snack food. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
