Pajarero Figs

The Pajarero fig is grown in Spain and is one of the finest varieties. These dried delicacies are sweet and mild, with a tender bite. They are an integral part of Spanish cuisine, the Pajarero fig is smaller and sweeter than its cousin from Turkey. Its thin, delicate skin allows the flavor of the fig to shine through.

At the end of August, the Pajarero starts to fall from the tree, signaling they are ripe and ready to go through the drying process. Small families cultivate the figs and collect them once they have all fallen. After going through the drying process, the figs are ready to eat.
