whats wet fig ?
A wet fig is a type of fruit that has a soft and moist texture. It has a thin skin that can be light yellow, creamy color, or brown, and a sweet fleshy texture that contains many tiny seeds. Wet figs are usually eaten fresh or dried, and can be used in salads, desserts, or jams.
Production method of wet figs
The production process of wet figs involves several steps, as follows:
- Planting and harvesting: Wet figs are grown in rainfed orchards, mostly on steep slopes, where they can benefit from the natural water harvesting and soil moisture retention. Figs are harvested in late summer. The harvested figs are then sorted and graded according to their size and quality.
- Drying: The fresh figs are dried in the sun for about two to three days, until they lose about 70% of their moisture. The drying process helps to prevent spoilage and fungal infections, and also enhances the sweetness and flavor of the figs. The dried figs are then stored in baskets, covered with cloth or paper, to protect them from dust and insects.
- Boiling: The dried figs are boiled in water for about 15 to 20 minutes, until they become soft and plump. The boiling process helps to rehydrate the figs and make them juicier and more tender. The boiled figs are then drained and cooled.
- Packing: The most common model for packaging wet figs is to press them. This way, the air inside the figs is discharged and their shelf-life increases. For this reason, they also call wet figs pressed figs. The weight of pressed fig packages is 100,150,200 and 250gr.
Factors influencing the pricing of wet fig
The most important parameter in determining the price of wet figs is the color of the product. The lighter the color, whether white or cream, the better the quality. Of course, you should keep in mind that brown figs have a very sweet taste, but from a commercial point of view, the brownish color has a cheaper price.
The next parameter in determining the price is the sweetness of the product. Balanced and natural sweetness indicates that the fruit sugar is fully ripe and harvested at the right time.
