Why is it that so many do not like figs? I spent the earlier years of my life in San Diego where we had a fig tree in the back yard. In fact, many of our neighbors had fig trees and all of the figs would taste different depending on the tree. I loved them all and still do. I like figs best when they come right off of the tree, but I also like them dried and I love fig newtons.
In an unofficial poll of my immediate family, 2 out of 6 people like figs in their natural state. One of the people who doesn't like them fresh off the tree does like them dried.
What about you?
