Explore the world of Ficus carica, the common fig, an Asian species of flowering plant, which provides the delicious and nutritional fig fruit. Originating from the Middle East and western Asia, Ficus carica has been cultivated since ancient times for both its fruit and ornamental properties. Now grown globally, the Fig has become a staple in regions where it is cultivated commercially. The fig tree thrives in dry, sunny habitats with deep, fresh soils, tolerating seasonal drought and even thriving in rocky terrains. It can grow up to 15-30 ft high, embellished with fragrant, deeply-lobed leaves and a complex fleshy structure - the syconium - that houses many flowers. These flowers bloom inside, resulting in a fruit that's actually a compendium of many one-seeded fruits. Ficus carica offers rewards beyond its scrumptious fruit – it creates a pleasant, cool environment which is a refuge for many animals in intense heat. Explore more about this remarkable species and our relationship with it throughout history right here.
