Did you know? Fig trees are known by many names throughout Africa; Mukuyu in the Shona language, Vyeboom in Afrikaans, Umkhiwa in Ndebele, شجرة التين in Arabic, and figueria in Portuguese. Fig trees grow in Africa from South Africa to Senegal and Egypt, Madagascar and the Union of Comoros. Figs like to grow in dry, sunny areas which make parts of South Africa the ideal place to grow figs. Figs are full of calcium and potassium and fiber and help keep your body running on track.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
