Black vs Green Figs

The different varieties of figs are classified by consumers depending on the color of the fruit’s skin. A fig can be classified into colors of green, yellow, purple, black, and white.

Figs also come in a variety of sizes from small, medium-sized, and large with each variety having a different taste and flavor of the fruit.

As there are a variety of colors of a fig’s skin, there are also a variety of colors of the fruit’s interior. Figs can have white, red, or purple colors of the interiors depending on the variety.

Figs come in many varieties, almost reaching 700 species in number. Green figs are the most common variety of figs; aside from the yellow figs variety.

Figs are often classified into four main groups: the Caprifig, the Calimyrna (or Smyrna),

the Common figs, and the San Pedro figs. Any color of the fig can belong to any of these

four. Green figs are also very convenient to grow for gardeners or cultivators since the

undiscernable to birds or other animals that might eat it.
