Short description

Spoiler alert. Figs are not fruit. What we call fruit is actually the inflorescence, the fruits are the single filaments contained within it. For pollination it uses the “fig wasp” which, in search of a place to lay its eggs, carries the pollen inside the fig and dies there, unable to get out. An enzyme in the fruit then breaks the wasp into proteins, while the larvae make their way out of the fruit and continue the life cycle of this strange insect.

Am I already your favorite tree?

Where will it be planted?

In Calabria, on abandoned municipal land where the Cooperative Progetto Germano helps all kinds of people, who for different reasons find themselves in difficult situations. Through sustainable agriculture, the cooperative supports social and territorial development, advocating against all forms of violence and in favour of law-abiding culture. “There can be no rest and dignity without work!”.
