I had to run for the sink--it was juicy as all get out, and free of grit cells, which had been what put me off pears (and especially canned Bartletts) in my childhood. Likewise, fresh figs are NOTHING like those old dried up (ancient?) ones I had to eat as a child--they were on a string, and imported. The filling in Newtons are much more moist. Fresh figs are joy blossoming in the mouth.
