Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
These freshly dried extra fancy California figs are one of the state’s finest fruits. Also known as Calimyrna figs, this is California’s version of the Smyrna fig, which was imported by a San Joaquin Valley grower. These plump, high-fiber California figs are great for eating when you crave something sweet and a nice complement to your favorite recipes.
Health Benefits of Calimyrna Figs
California figs are an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. A serving of these figs provides 20 percent of the recommended daily value for dietary fiber. Soluble fiber slows carbohydrate digestion to help your body absorb more nutrients from food. It also stabilizes blood sugar and may reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Insoluble fiber is important for a healthy digestive system.
Calimryna figs are also rich in minerals like potassium, calcium, and iron. Potassium plays a vital role in heart health, from regulating blood pressure to helping the heart beat. Daily intake of calcium is necessary since our bodies don't produce this mineral naturally. It's a well-known fact that calcium is critical for healthy bones and teeth; it also boosts metabolism and supports the cardiovascular system. The iron content in these Calimryna figs supports the formation of hemoglobin so that your body's cells have enough oxygen to function.
Ideas for Using Calimyrna Figs
These plump California figs are a sweet and natural snack that is wonderful on its own, or alongside other foods. Try them chopped and stirred into oatmeal or hot cereal. Dried Calimyrna figs are also delicious with ricotta cheese and used as a topper for toast. They make a sweet addition to sandwiches and wraps. Served alongside other dried fruit, cheese, and nuts, these California figs are an exquisite appetizer. They are wonderful in baking; add them to your recipes for scones, muffins, and breads. For a boost of fiber and minerals, dried figs are delectable atop salads and pastas. We’re sure you’ll find a wide variety of uses for them!

“These figs are wonderful. I bought some for me and my mom, and she went nuts over them, then she gave some to my brother, and now he wants more. They are great as a snack and they really do help keep you regular. I have ordered at least 8 lbs of them so far, and will be ordering more in the near future. They are so moist and tender. Everyone needs to try these!”
