Fig tree

The Fig tree, a tree native to Western Asia, has become acclimatized in different temperate regions of the world. It is rustic and can adapt to most floors. We harvest its fruit, the fig, from July to September. Its large, dark green leaves resemble the shape of a hand. According to the Old Testament, it was with a fig leaf that Adam and Eve tried to hide their nudity in the Garden of Eden.
