The History and Biology of the Fig: Man as a Fig Slave

I would now like to talk about "cultivation". Cultivation as what man does with nature and perhaps also only means to do. The fig has almost forced itself upon man; it has infiltrated his religious and sexual symbolism, yes, it has indeed superimposed human sexuality in the truest sense of the word: as a fig leaf.

It is not too far to a phallic meaning that the fig and the fig wood with its milky juice also have. And the fig: the fig is divided longitudinally into two halves, broken, then the mouth and mostly the nose are immersed in the moist, reddish, fibrous fruit pulp in order to absorb all of its deliciousness.

A Fig Scandal in California

A Fig Scandal in California

In the course of its long history, the fig has often been amusing amidst all the confusion that it caused with its different types of fruit and its complicated pollination biology. The most extreme case is the total failure of Californian fig cultivation in the 80s and 90s of the 19th century.

THE 4 TYPES OF FIGS

THE 4 TYPES OF FIGS

It is not possible to divide the fig types. They are probably formed one after the other in the order described below, but they still belong together; the later type is inconceivable without the earlier type, and, above all, they cannot be reproduced and further developed. In our region, however, quite generally north of the Alps, only cultivated figs can be grown, since the fig wasp has not advanced as far north as the fig itself. All Lubera Gustissimo figs are cultivated figs!
