Common varieties include Calimyrna, Mission, Kadota, and Brown Turkey

Choose ones that smell sweet and are soft to the touch, but make sure you handle them carefully as they bruise easily.

Also, they do not store for more than a day or two, so plan on using them very soon after harvest or purchase.

They can be added to smoothies, cereals, and salads while raw.

An easy appetizer uses halves or quarters topped with goat cheese and chopped nuts.

Desserts include homemade ice cream or sorbets, or poached figs in wine topped with a variety of sauces.
