Brief Description: In the Sahara, the fig tree is only possible where irrigation is constant. This is a species found more often in Mediterranean climates. The fruits are the large draw since they are comestible and can be dried for storage or transportation. This fig tree, pictured above, is likely to serve local demand only.
