Fresh figs

    How They Grow

    • The fruit is actually a large inflorescence, varying in colour from green to black-purple.
    • Figs can be eaten fresh or dried.
    • Jolife figs are eaten fresh.
    • The fig is very resistant to drought thanks to its large and deep roots. However, it is strongly affected by adverse climactic conditions: low temperatures and hailstones can completely destroy the production.
    • Choosing the best period for the harvest is an operation that requires great attention; this is why the experience of Jolife’s fig producers plays an essential role from the very start of the production chain.
    • Ficus carica (this is the botanical name of the fruits) are very delicate: during the harvest the fruit must be separated from the stalk, avoiding tearing the skin.
    • The harvest is performed exclusively by hand.
    • The Jolife branded packaging is specially developed to avoid mechanical damage to the fruit during transportation to the sales outlet.
