FIG SEASON IN CENTRAL VALLEY
September 20, 2013
Fig Season Ending Soon
Fans of fresh figs will have to move fast. Farmers report the fig season is coming to an early end. One Merced County farmer says the season was the earliest she has experienced in 23 years, because of warm spring weather that caused figs to mature faster.
Almost all U.S.-grown figs come from California, and nearly all of those come from Madera, Merced and Fresno counties.
