Every supermarket used to sell them and now I can't find them anywhere? Are they out of season? Is there a fig shortage?

Hi. I think Aldi or Lidl do them. Good price too so my work mates say!

They'll be with the flying ones that you can't give.

Wait until late August/September.

That is their season.

We have all got used to having everything we want, regardless of seasons.

Maybe there has been a run on them after they were on the Hemsley programme earlier this week.....

I had no idea we grew figs in the UK.
TBF I tend to ignore seasons more than I probably should.

The season is August September.
I doubt you are going to find any at this time of the year.

You will find them again around September.
What were you planning to make, maybe we could suggest an alternative?

Would the soft semi dried work, for instance in a sauce?

They sell them in M&S. I bought some reduced ones yesterday.

The figs on trees local to me (south france) are still very small and hard.. you'll need to wait at least until end june/early july followed usually by a second crop in september, or get them from much warmer climes!
