Of course, since MM and the VM lived their 2000 or so yrs ago and fig trees don’t live but 200 yrs, probably not the actual tree they ate off of, but surely a descendant since it’s still there by the Catholic Shrine or maybe someone propagated it for 2000 yrs. Into the Mystic! Anyway, it’s a tasty fig! I’m not good with describing flavors so I asked my wife what it tasted like and here’s what she said-

And stays with them when they go back and it’s spread to family and coworkers .. so many stories behind lots of figs that our forum member share with us .
