Figs are not my favorite fruit, but since they are sort of rare it’s always nice when I have the chance to eat them. Recently Sam taught me something horrifying about figs, though! I didn’t know that most of the figs we eat are made only when a female wasp dies inside the fruit. Without the dead wasp inside, most figs won’t grow into fruit. It’s an interesting fact but as someone who really hates all bugs, it makes me not want to eat figs often!
Knowing more about the world is really fun, but sometimes it can be gross too… thanks, Sam.
