Dried figs are rather neglected during the summer months, which is somewhat logical because they are more and more accessible and fresh to us. The general recommendation is to take them in any form and believe us you will not go wrong. Whether it is fresh or dried figs, they are very useful for our health.

They are rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients and, above all, vitamins. Don’t neglect this fruit, it is very nutritious and it is not right to remember it only during fasting and colder winter months…

Figs were consumed 11,000 years ago, as confirmed by the latest research in the Middle East. Our ancestors definitely enjoyed this fruit. It is even believed that they grew it rather than wheat, legumes and barley.

Today, figs are grown all over the planet, on all continents, and not only in the Mediterranean, where this fruit comes from. It is best to plant figs in early autumn (this applies to the Mediterranean area) or in spring (Continental area).

Cover the root of the plant well and compact it with soil. The fertilizer is placed on such compacted soil, but in a moderate amount (by no means overdo it). The fertilizer should not touch the root. Transfer the rest of the soil over the fertilizer and compact everything a little again. When the planting of figs is finished, water it well. Take care to make a distance of 4 to 5 meters between the seedlings, although this mostly depends on the type.

The common fig Latin name Ficus carica is the most popular and widespread species today. It is grateful for growing because it can give birth twice a year and brings us hundreds of exceptional fruits, colorful colors and different sizes. Its juicy fleshy part is a real treasure trove of health and can have a pear shape or look like a small bell. Dried figs that we find in stores today are the most common of this type.

The first fruits of new seedlings can be expected around the third year, they are picked together with the stalk and it is best to do it in the morning and on those mornings that are not dewy. Before each harvest, the figs should be allowed to ripen well on the tree.


We can freely say that fresh figs are a low-calorie fruit because they contain only 74 calories per 100 grams. Keep this in mind for all of you who are planning to lose weight or are already on a diet. From August to September, this fruit is available to us in its raw form. Feel free to eat it like that instead of snacks.

Dried figs are far more caloric because they contain 249 calories per 100 grams, so the same rules do not apply to them. All this is far from being bad and not good – on the contrary, they are exceptional. Fresh fruits are rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals and are a real help for good and strong immunity. Dietary fiber and low caloric content of fresh fruits go in favor of maintaining a slim figure.

Diabetics must be careful, because they must not overdo it with consumption, this is especially true for dried figs. The fruit can be stored in freezers for up to 6 months. If you buy fresh, always look for a fruit that is soft to the touch and emits an irresistibly sweet scent.


Dried figs have slightly more calories than fresh but are also highly concentrated sources of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Like fresh fruit, dried figs are rich in B vitamins. They are great for our brain and improve our mood and slow down aging. These include pantothenic acid, niacin, pyridoxine and folic acid. Together, they participate in the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

Dried figs are rich in minerals, such as calcium, zinc, selenium, potassium, copper and iron. The latter two are very important for the formation of erythrocytes and help in the treatment of anemia.

Potassium is an indispensable and integral part of cells, as well as body fluids, which are very important for the regulation of blood pressure and proper heart rhythm.

The calcium in dried figs far exceeds that in cow’s milk, which many do not know. However, do not overdo their consumption, if you care about the slim line.
