Okay, here's a tough one

Black mission figs.
Where can I get them in the suburbs?
Wegmans? Whole Foods?

      Beulah are they fresh or dried?

    2. I saw fresh figs (don't know if they're black mission figs) last week at Pete's Produce in Westtown.

        I was also at Pete's (going again this Thursday for my Marai corn!) but those figs were not Black Mission.
        Good to know that I can get them at Whole Foods near me.

          The fresh black mission figs I got at WF on the fairway the other week were some of the biggest, most amazing figs I've ever had - easily 2 inches across and perfectly ripe.
