The taste, the tenderness, and the texture of Turkish Dried figs combine to produce a totally unique sensory experience – an experience that is being discovered and enjoyed by more and more people every day.

Figs are unique, not only for their wonderful flavor but also for their unusual maturation process. Surprisingly, fig-trees have no flowers on their branches; instead, the blossoms are inverted and develop inside the fruit. The figs grow from June to late August and are allowed to fully ripen on the tree from August through September. The figs then fall to the carefully prepared ground where further drying and then harvesting occurs. The figs will be harvested several times during the season.

LADACA has been around for a while, which means we’ve had a lot of time to perfect our technique for Fig Chips production. Our Fig Chips are produced from sliced fresh figs that are spread on sieves and dried under the sun naturally. There’s no need for dehydrating the fruits mechanically as the sun does all the work. We step back and let Mother Nature do her job when it comes to growing and ripening our fruits. 

When fully ripen, we start harvesting fresh figs just before the sunrise and each fresh fig goes through a slicing process immediately to preserve their freshness and quality – locking in maximum flavor and nutrients! Fig Chips are less dry and have a different flavor than conventional dried figs.
