Ursprungsland Türkei


The journey of our honey-sweet figs starts out in beautiful Turkey. In the west of the country, our figs grow in the mountains of the Aydin region, which directly borders the Aegean Sea. Turkey has a highly varied climate, which naturally includes the area where our apricots and raisins are grown.

Anbau der Seeberger Feigen


One of the oldest cultivated plants in Europe, the fig is grown throughout the Mediterranean. We discovered the juiciest fruits with the highest quality in the mountainous region of Aydin, where the figs are grown exclusively in small-scale farming structures. The high altitudes make the growing conditions very difficult, but they also make the fruit ripen more slowly, which in the end rewards us with a better and more intense flavor.

Seeberger Feigen am Baum


Pear-shaped, oval, round with yellow, green or purple skin – there are over 750 different fig tree species and the fruits look very different depending on the variety. There are also male and female fig trees, which can be seen at first glance. Due to their natural sweetness, the female figs are processed into dried fruit. The male figs go into marmalade, as they are somewhat more bitter and sugar must be added. Both are needed in the orchard, where the female fruits are fertilized by the fig wasp that carries the pollen from the male to the female trees.

Sonnentrocknung der Seeberger Feigen


From fertilization to harvesting the fruit takes about 75 days. Ripe fruits are juicy-soft, yet not mushy, and a dark coloration indicates full ripeness. The labor-intensive harvest takes place by hand amidst the mountain slopes each September. The figs are laid out to dry in the sun right there in the orchards and on the mountain slopes. At night they are spread with tarpaulins to protect them from birds and from getting dirty.

Verarbeitung der Seeberger Feigen


The sun-dried figs are then taken to the processing plants, which are also in the Aydin region. There the dried fruits are again washed thoroughly and dried again. The initial drying takes a few minutes in a drying tunnel. The figs are then sorted by size; the especially fleshy fruits are what we prefer. The quality of the dried figs is then carefully examined in five stations, for example in the darkroom with the aid of UV light, by laser sorter, and by hand by trained employees.

Qualitätskontrolle der Seeberger Feigen


One decisive criterion for the quality classification of our figs is the size and color of the figs. We prefer the large fruits. Another important factor is the taste of the fruit – our figs have a fruity sweetness. Dried, the figs are even more delicate than other dried fruits. For that reason the fruits are strictly and extensively inspected by our local partner’s experienced quality team of 10 employees. As soon as the dried figs reach us in Ulm, they are thoroughly checked again by our in-house food chemistry laboratory.

Langjährige Partnerschaft


A valuable piece of nature lies in each of our Seeberger packages. That makes it a matter of the heart for us to preserve natural resources during cultivation and to create good living and working conditions for our local partners. We are proud to have built up a long-standing and trusting partnership with our fig suppliers, which is now being successfully continued by the third generation.

Feigenbaum in der Türkei


Fig trees in Turkey grow freely on the mountain slopes and water reaches them naturally, so there is no need to irrigate them. Did you know that fig trees can live up to 90 years? At the end of their productive life they are recycled into firewood.
