Fig

Fruits of the orchard
Fig (Fruits of the orchard)

The fig is a very old fruit as it originates from South-West Asia. It then rapidly spread to the Mediterranean area and was much appreciated in Roman times together with dates, olives and grapes. It is therefore not surprising that the major producing countries are still Turkey, Italy and Greece; in France, it is mainly grown in the South. There are now a multitude of fig varieties - 750 in all - which are classified into three categories: white, red and purple.

Report on Didier Fabre, fig producer and Les vergers Boiron partner.

The Fabre domain, located in the Gapeau Valley, in Provence, between Hyères and Toulon, produces quality Solliès figs, which were granted the status of AOC (Controlled Appellation) in 2006 and AOP (Protected Appellation) in 2015. The collaboration with the Fabre domain goes back 20 years and has been perpetuated across two generations. It is emblematic of the Les vergers Boiron philosophy in the way it works with its privileged suppliers, based on three key words: terroir, trust, exchange.
