In our country, figs are mostly grown in Aydın and İzmir in the Aegean Region. Following these, fresh fig figs are produced especially around Bursa in the Marmara Region and Icel in the Mediterranean Region.

While fresh figs are consumed as table, dried figs are used in various desserts in homes and in the food industry for the production of products such as mash and marshmallows.
