ABSTRACT
Fig, the name of an economically important fruit and of the plant that bears it. The fig plant is of the same genus as the rubber plant, the banyan tree, and the pipal. Figs, which grow only in a hot, dry climate, are widely cultivated in Turkey, Greece, and Italy. In the United States, they are grown mainly in California. Cultivation of figs dates back more than 4,000 years; figs are mentioned many times in the Bible.
