Growing and harvesting

The fig is a member of the ficus family and is a strong, vigorous
plant. The cultivated varieties are grown on wild rootstock and
pruned into the shape preferred by the grower. A fig tree comes
into production about two to three years after planting, and then
has a productive life span of many decades. It takes three months
for the blossom to develop into ripe fruits. The delicate fruits are
picked by hand and carefully placed in baskets. They are then
transported to the packing station to be graded for quality, ripeness
and size. Afterwards, the figs are packed are freighted to the
Netherlands.
