As I mentioned in previous posts, Summer (July, August & September) is the season when we have the best Portuguese fruits. I picked the figs in the picture above from one of the trees in a friend´s countryhome. We call them "Figos Lampos" because they are the first figs of the season produced by each tree. For me, the first figs are the best ones. This figs are produced by the samr tree but the green ones aren´t as sweet as the darker. I saw figs in the supermarket at 4.80 Euros per kilo, the ones in the picture were for free :) See you soon.
