King Louis XIV was so taken by this exotic fruit that, before the construction of the Palace of Versailles had even been completed, he demanded that hundreds of fig trees be planted in its gardens.
A faithful homage to this evocative fruit that represents each facet of the tree: the softness of the sap, the freshness of the leaves, the delicious sweet flavour of the fruit.
