How They Grow
- The fruit is actually a large inflorescence, varying in colour from green to black-purple.
- Figs can be eaten fresh or dried.
- Jolife figs are eaten fresh.
- The fig is very resistant to drought thanks to its large and deep roots. However, it is strongly affected by adverse climactic conditions: low temperatures and hailstones can completely destroy the production.
- Choosing the best period for the harvest is an operation that requires great attention; this is why the experience of Jolife’s fig producers plays an essential role from the very start of the production chain.
- Ficus carica (this is the botanical name of the fruits) are very delicate: during the harvest the fruit must be separated from the stalk, avoiding tearing the skin.
- The harvest is performed exclusively by hand.
- The Jolife branded packaging is specially developed to avoid mechanical damage to the fruit during transportation to the sales outlet.
- The high content of easily assimilated sugars makes them an appreciable source of energy.
- They help to strengthen the bones and the teeth, thanks to the presence of vitamin A and minerals such as potassium, iron and calcium.
- Nutritious and easily digestible, they are recommended at all stages of life: infancy, adolescence, pregnancy, sporting activity, convalescence.
- Eating figs brings benefits to the sight and to the skin.
- If consumed in an appreciable quantity, they are able to regulate the intestine.
