Minorca is known for her numerous fig trees and the abundance of local varieties (“figaflor”, “coll de dama”, “bordissot”, “paratjal”…). The first one to ripen, at the end of June is “figaflor” the most valued. Others ripen in August (“agostenques”) and some others in October but it is the summer ones that are most appreciated and that are used in desserts and “Oliaigua”.
