We’ve got figs . . . actually the Climbing Fig fruit (Ficus pumila fruit). Some sources say they are inedible, but this is not true as these figs are used in Asian cuisine and in traditional Chinese medicine.
The climbing fig fruit is pale green in colour and looks like a miniature green pear.
This morning I decided to cut open one of these climbing fig fruits to see what inside looked like, and this is what I saw.
I read that when this fruit is mature, it is dried to make a Chinese medicinal tea. The dried climbing fig fruit, along with other traditional dry herbs are combined to create a kidney tonic that is used for various ailments and for promoting blood circulation.
