27 Delicious Ways To Eat Fresh Figs

Fig season is fleeting, so get 'em while you can. There will be plenty of time for this in the fall.

Figs are delicious. Their subtle sweetness and seedy texture make them great for sweet or savory dishes. That said, they can be elusive. Fig season lasts from June to September, but they're mostly unavailable outside of that window. When ripe, they are delicate and spoil quickly, but when underripe or picked out of season, they are tasteless and not really worth eating.

But, they're in peak season right now, so take advantage. Buy figs that are ripe — they should smell fresh and be nice and soft, but not totally mushy — with intact skin and no bruising.
