Not to be confused with the figs that have the vibrant pink flesh and deep purple skins, Barbadian figs are family to the banana. They are referred to as baby bananas because they are only about three to four inches long! Barbadian figs are grown in the same way as bananas but on a fig tree and develop in a group which we call a hand of figs. The fruit is similar tasting to the banana but slightly sweeter and it is immensely enjoyed among locals. Usually this fruit is eaten when ripe as a tasty healthy snack or combined with other fruit to make a fruit smoothie.
