Fig fruit famous and favorite throughout history. It is a fruit that has been appreciated since ancient times in its dry and green color. It is cultivated in several areas such as the UAE, Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Oman. It was used by the Phoenicians in their sea and land trips.

It is said that he reached the Greeks through a country called Karika in Asia. Therefore, we know that the name replaces the name of the country where the fig arrived to the west, which is called English in the name of Fix Karika. Athletes in particular relied mainly on figs for their belief that they were gaining strength. At that time, the Greek state enacted a law prohibiting the export of figs and fruits of excellent quality from their countries to other countries. Fig entered Europe via Italy.
The fig tree grows in a warm winter climate i.e. it does not need a cold winter like the rest of the fallen fruits and in the summer the fig needs a humid atmosphere and moderate rainfall in winter.
Most of the land is suitable for the cultivation of figs, but the best for its growth are yellow clay lands. It is believed that lime-rich land is very necessary for the production of the finest varieties, especially those suitable for drying.
