California figs By California Fresh Fig Growers Association

California’s Fresh Fig season is officially underway. This year’s first crop, known as the breba crop, delivered the first Mission figs of the season in May and June.

The main crop, now underway, is delivering plump and delicious varieties, such as Brown Turkeys and Sierras. Additional varieties will continue to become available through November.

There are five primary varieties of California Fresh Figs available – Brown Turkey, Kadota, Mission, Sierra and Tiger.

  • Mission. Purple and black skin with deep earthy flavor.

  • Kadota. Creamy amber skin with a light flavor.

  • Brown Turkey. Light purple to black skin with robust flavor.

  • Sierra. Light-colored skin with a fresh, sweet flavor.

  • Tiger. Light yellow color with unique dark green stripes and a bright red-purple interior fruit with fruity, raspberry, citrus flavor.

“The California fig industry has been strategically focused on digital marketing efforts throughout the pandemic to ensure California Figs stay top of mind among consumers, product developers and chefs,” says Karla Stockli, Chief Executive Officer of the California Fresh Fig Growers Association. “We have invested in beautiful photography and videos, new recipes, toolkits targeting dietitians and manufacturers, digital media partnerships, and more. The results are strong demand for California Figs in 2022.”

Canada is the California Fig industry’s #1 export market, with nearly 50% of the fresh crop crossing over the border annually.

The California Fig Advisory Board and California Fresh Fig Growers Association promote awareness and the use of California-produced dried and fresh figs domestically and internationally.
