SHELF LIFE & STORAGE
These figs should be stored in a cool, dry environment free from infestations with a temperature range of 35 degrees F to 60 degrees F and 55% or less relative humidity. If stored under these conditions, the shelf life is 12 months from the date of manufacturer. A natural aging process known as sugaring may take place wherein natural sugars may crystallize on the skin of the fruit. This process generally is noticeable within three months of processing but is not an indication that the fruit has expired.
