Figs - i primi
Figs have two fruitings each year - or at least they are supposed to, but usually we only seem to get the one later in the year. The first is the 'primi' in July, where the fruit have been on the tree all winter. This year we have loads of primi and I think that it is thanks to the generous winter rains. Quite a treat as these early fruit are especially juicy. Then just wait until September for the summer figs which will be a bit smaller but more intensely sweet.
