Description

hammerwood @ OurFigs: Hands down the most unique and different tasting fig my wife and I had the pleasure of tasting is the Sumacki. It’s a Middle Eastern fig first introduced by Bass from Trees of Joy. It derives its name Sumacki from the Middle Eastern/Mediterranean spice Sumac. Our young plant gave us one fig last summer. It was supposed to taste like the sumac spice berry which has a lemony tart taste, but that’s not what we tasted. The taste reminded us of something, but neither of us could put our finger on it. It’s not something we taste frequently but still it was not unknown. It tastes like something perhaps you would find in Indian style cooking. My wife thought it would pair well with fresh bitter greens and vinaigrette. Anyway we thought it was very good and we’re hopeful for many more figs next season.
