Bursa is a medium to large black fig. It is an excellent fresh fig variety with a deliciously honey-like flavour when really tender and mature. With its dark purplish-black colouration, the fruit is ripe when a velvety tenderness can be detected on gentle touch.

The Turkish Bursa Black Fig season in September to early November is the best opportunity of the year for consumers to enjoy delicious, reasonably priced fresh figs in good volumes.
