Simple and Stylish Fig Dessert Recipe

Names of figs around Africa

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 are quite adaptable and can be grown in smallish gardens if their roots are contained.

Fig trees grow well in African soil

Figs are among the oldest fruits known to humankind and fig trees grow in Africa from South Africa to Senegal and Egypt, Madagascar and the Union of Comoros. Figs originate from hot, dry areas with low humidity where the summers are sunny and long and the winters short and cool. However, figs will grow in all types of soil as long as it is well drained or adequate moisture is provided. Adams is one of the oldest fig cultivars in South Africa while the African rock fig grows throughout much of tropical Africa.
