The beauty of the Mallorcan fig fruit is found in its variety. There are white figs, green figs, red figs, blue figs, violet figs and black figs, plus dozens of in-between varieties. The fig season is starting at the end of summer. The so-called Common Fig tree (Ficus carica) is a temperate species from the Middle East. The tree is called Higuera in Spanish, or Figuera in Catalan.
