Fresh black mission figs are a delicious treat to have in your kitchen. They can be eaten raw, cooked, or dried. They are also full of nutrients and are a great source of potassium. If you want to store fresh black mission figs for later use, however, you’ll need to know how to do so properly.

If you want to store fresh black mission figs for a long time, it’s important that you keep them in an airtight container. This will keep them from getting soft, mushy, and moldy.

The best way to store fresh black mission figs is by placing them in a plastic bag that’s been sealed shut. You can also use a Tupperware container or any other airtight container if you have one available. If you don’t have either of those, then just make sure that there isn’t any extra air space in the container so that the fruit doesn’t get too soft or mushy over time.

Store fresh figs in the refrigerator.

As soon as you get home from the grocery store or farmers market, slice up your figs and place them in a plastic bag. You can also freeze them for future use if you have leftover figs after making a meal.

Keep this bag of figs in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator and away from other fruits and vegetables. They will last longer when put together because they release ethylene gas, which causes rapid ripening and spoiling of other food items.

Don’t wash them until ready to eat them, just rinse under cool water before serving so you can enjoy their sweet taste.

Handle figs carefully.

When handling fresh figs, it’s important to keep them as clean as possible. To do this, use clean hands, wash the cutting surface, and don’t overstuff your fridge.

Here are some tips for handling fresh figs:

  • Cut each fruit in half with a sharp knife. If you’re using a cutting board, make sure it’s washed beforehand so that any bacteria from other foods won’t be transferred onto your board or into your food.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before handling fresh fruit (or any food). You should also always wash your hands after touching raw meat or poultry products to avoid cross-contamination of bacteria, that is, transferring harmful germs from one type of food product to another.

Use a perforated plastic bag to extend their shelf life.

If you only have a few figs and want to keep them fresh for several days, place them in a perforated plastic bag and put a paper towel on top of the figs to absorb any moisture. Place this in your refrigerator immediately after purchasing them at the store. Keep them there until you’re ready to eat them (about three days).

Check their condition every day when you open the fridge.

  • Check the color and scent. Figs should be a deep brownish purple, with a sweet aroma. If they’re pale or have an unpleasant smell, compost them.
  • Check the stems. The ends of the stems should be green, not brown or black, in other words, make sure that no mold is growing on your figs.
  • Check the skin. Make sure it’s dry and not sticky; if it is sticking together, tear it apart gently as you would an apple slice set out overnight in a bowl of water so that this doesn’t happen again in your fridge. You can also use a small piece of cloth (a clean tea towel works well) wrapped around one finger to gently wipe away any excess moisture from between all those little nooks and crannies found along each side edge where all those leaves meet up with one another while still maintaining their own identities before being joined together as one big bunchy mass at both ends.”

If you have a lot of figs and want to keep them for longer than three days, place them in your refrigerator immediately after purchasing them. Keep the fruit there until you’re ready to eat it (about five days).

Wash figs right before you eat them.

Wash figs right before you eat them. Don’t put them in a bowl, then leave them on the counter for days. This is a good way to ruin your figs because all that sitting time will cause mold and other unpleasantries to grow inside. Instead, wash off any dust or small debris (like bugs) with a damp cloth before adding them to salads or putting them away in storage containers if you’re not planning on eating them immediately. Don’t use soap.

If you’ve ever had a fig, you know just how sweet they are. In fact, they’re one of the most delicious fruits on earth, and that’s why it’s so important to know how to pick them. If you’re lucky enough to have some growing in your backyard or even if you just happen upon some at a farmers market, make sure that they’re ripe before picking them because otherwise. Figs are a delicate fruit, and they don’t like to be scrubbed with soap. This will not only damage some of the natural enzymes and nutrients in your figs, but it will also cause them to turn brown when you rinse them off. Instead, use a damp cloth that’s been rung out well to clean them off if necessary.

Freeze figs for longer storage.

To freeze fresh figs, first lay them out in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Then place the baking sheet into your freezer and freeze the figs until they are solid, about 2 hours. Transfer the frozen figs to an airtight bag or container and return them to your freezer for up to six months. To use frozen figs in recipes, thaw them for about 30 minutes at room temperature or place them in a colander under warm running water for about 10 minutes until their skins are soft enough to remove easily (they will not become completely soft). The thawed fruit can then be used in any recipe that calls for fresh black mission figs, just cut off any part of the stem that looks too dry or hard.

Keep an eye on your fresh figs, store them properly and enjoy.

The black mission fig is a wonderful summertime treat. They are sweet and succulent, with a slightly tart flavor that pairs perfectly with cream cheese or goat cheese. Since they’re so delicate, they must be kept refrigerated after opening. You can keep them for up to two weeks if you follow our tips below:

  • Check your fresh figs every day or two. If you’re not sure if a fig is still good, put it in the microwave on high for 10 seconds. If it’s fresh, it’ll be soft enough to eat; if not, it’ll be hard as a rock.
  • Once opened (and refrigerated), black mission figs will last about two weeks before going bad, so make sure you have plenty around when you buy them.

In Conclusion

When you’re ready to eat them, wash your figs in cold water and pat them dry. You can eat them fresh or add them to a salad or dessert for a burst of sweet flavor.
