Eat figs

From August to November in Crete is season figs, here it grows in every corner, and its fruits are so juicy that you have a chance to eat to satiety :)

You can recognize fig tree because of large dark green leaves resembling clover. The fruits are light green or violet. The crust must be removed, and you need to eat the pulp a hand or a spoon.

The most delicious figs in the ruins of the monastery near Frangokastello and on the territory of Vravrona.

Prices: figs are sold in the markets and in supermarkets for €4-5 a kilogram, but it is best to pick a few from the tree fro free.
