Tiger fig, Candy stripe fig, Panaché fig (Eng.), Tiervy (Afr.)
Figs are small deciduous trees with large leathery leaves. Tiger fig fruit has prominent yellow and green stripes with pink flesh. Tiger Striped figs are light yellow and green-striped, medium-sized and have a rather bottom-heavy tear-drop shape. Beneath the green-ribbed skin lies a crimson-colored seeded pulp with a flavor similar to that of strawberry or raspberry jam. The flavor is light and sweet, as fully ripe Tiger Stripe figs have a high sugar content. Also called “Candy Stripe” figs, this variety is considered to be one of the best tasting of all figs.
