The fig is one of the first plants that was cultivated by humans with some fig fossils dating to about 9400-9200 BC found in Jordan. Native to the Middle East and western Asia, the fig has been cultivated since ancient times. Derived from the Latin word ficus, the term fig has a great importance in Mediterranean and Middle East cultures. The edible fruit of the fig tree is an uncommon fruit due to its pear-shaped silhouette and its content made of many small one-seeded fruits called ‘’druplets’’. Dried fig Col de Senora has a rich and sweet flavor with a slightly nutty taste. Very hard to resist ! Native of South Dauphiné valleys in France, Grenoble walnut was the first type of fruit to receive in 1938 the French AOC certification (‘’Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée’’ or Protected Designation of Origin – PDO in English) . It was certified for its great quality directly related to the environment it grows on: the dauphinois ‘’terroir’’. Only 3 varieties of walnuts are authorized for the production of AOC Grenoble Walnut: Franquette, Mayette and Parisienne.
Dried figs are high in dietary fiber and a good source of several essential minerals, including magnesium, manganese, calcium (which promotes bone density), copper, and potassium (which helps lower blood pressure), as well as vitamins, principally K and B6. AOC Grenoble walnut contains many trace-elements like zinc, copper, iron and potassium supporting our immune, muscular and nervous systems. It is also rich in arginine and omega-3 fatty acids improving cardiovascular health. Nutritionists often mention that eating up to 5-8 walnuts daily is good for health.
