When I was at World Farm yesterday, the lady at the counter gave me a fig grown at their nursery. Now I have tasted really sweet fresh figs in a restaurant in Provence and seen them at the markets in Paris but a big red fig grown in Singapore? This, I must try.
The flesh is a little sappy and not as sweet and succulent as their European cousins, but overall, the taste is quite pleasant. Quite like guava actually.
*15 minutes later* Eh, now my tongue feels funny. Abit itchy. :-P
