In addition to Dates, We are promoting 'AFGAN FIG' crop which will give a very good yield and income every year from the first year of planting itself. Figs are consumed fresh, and after sun or artificial drying. They have been an important fruit of commerce in the eastern Mediterranean region since antiquity, and today are grown in many parts of the world. Figs have a high sugar content and are a fair source of vitamins A, B, and B2. The fig fruit is actually a hollow receptacle with hundreds of small fleshy flowers facing each other on the inside. In their native habitat, figs are pollinated by a tiny gall wasp that enters the flower cluster through a small opening in the apex. Each flower then produces a small fruit containing the seeds.

The fig is highly nutritive, demulcent, diuretic, digestive, emollient, galactagogue, tonic, blood purifier and expectorant. It also has mild laxative properties. Vitamins B1 and B2 are also found in figs. B1, Thiamine, is essential in the breakdown of carbohydrates, a process from which we derive energy. Vitamin B1 also maintains the normal function of the nervous system and heart. Vitamin B2, Riboflavin, is essential for cell growth and enzymatic reactions from which the body metabolizes proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. B2 also promotes healthy skin, eyes and mucous membranes. A decoction of figs is useful as a demulcent to soothe mucous membranes of the lungs for colds. Figs are also used in leucoderma as it contains ‘furocoumarin’ which is responsible for this action.
