My FIG Tree!

I have always wanted a fig tree! Do not ask me why, but something on my personal ‘would likes’ not a ‘must have’ – life is too short, but something I always wanted! I can recall a story from a closing many years ago. The attorney stated that he had sold a home, only to find out at the closing table that the owners were taking the fig tree. The buyer stated that the fig tree was THE only reason they were purchasing the home! So ensued the monetary debate!

11 Amazing Health Benefits of Figs – Healthy Focus

Figs, also known as anjeer, are so good for because they are loaded with healthy nutrients. They are a good source of vitamins including vitamins A, B1 and B2 as well as minerals like manganese, potassium, iron, calcium and phosphorus. And let us not forget they are a great source of fiber and we all know how important that is for our health.

They are good for your heart, constipation (lack thereof!), cancer prevention, healthy bones, diabetics, blood pressure, eyes and sexual dysfunction (oh my!).

To be quite honest with you, other than knowing they are healthy for you, I neve realized all of the other benefits BUT I am so glad I finally have my own tree!

My dear friend, Robert Kraft, shared his crop with me this year but he is now selling his home, and so I am so glad I now have one myself. I had planted two trees previously but they all died. This is my third and I am ecstatic that I am finally seeing some baby figs!
