A medium to large black fig. This is a decent fresh fig variety that travels well and is readily sold loose or pre-packed. The fruit is slightly firm to touch, but is ripe when tenderness can be detected. Due to harvesting slightly early to ensure good condition in transit, we rarely get the best tasting Bursa: the flavour is deliciously honey-like when really tender and mature.
Grown in: Turkey, Israel
