Osborn Prolific Fig

September 22nd, 2009 | Fruit Maven

If you are the kind of person who eats things like spirulina, brewer’s yeast or liver, because you like it and not because you have to for some reason, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★½☆☆

Greenish brown skin, squatty, pale pink inside

AROMA Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Smells like a vegetable

TEXTURE Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Soft, some crunch from the seeds, threads, not appealing

TASTE Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Not very sweet, bland, blah

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★☆☆☆

This is the first fig I have ever tasted raw and I am not impressed – if I didn’t have six more kinds of figs sitting in front of me, I would never try another one based on this. So dull.
