Go fig or go home! Black Mission, Calimyrna, Kadota, Brown Turkey and Sierras. Yes, that's fig talk and they're in season in California. Mission figs, with their deep purple skin and sweet, pinkish hued flesh can be found at many a farmers market at the onset of Fall (or "indian summer," as true Californians call it). The aforementioned are just a few more California grown figs to become acquainted with. As beloved as pumpkins may be this time of year, figs are well worth an equal hype.
