Description

Not to be confused with "Sumaki"

Bass: An excellent tasting fig with unique sumac spice flavor. Yellow skin with deep red pulp. Originally from Syria and has done well in ground in our cold climate. When fully ripe it has a drop of honey oozing from its eye.

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.

Per donor: "Very large white fig. Excellent tasting. From Syria."
