Ficus carica, the fig, is one of the ancient crop plants originated from Anatolia. This is one of the most precious fruit crops beneficial to human health. It contains vitamins, minerals, protective compounds, and high carbohydrate content for human diet. On the one hand some people are starving in remote areas in the world, and on the other hand some people are getting obese. The more global climate change affects agricultural production and the food chain, the more the divide between the poor and the rich opens. While some experts draw attention to food security from farm to fork, some others advocate sustainable energy usage. When we are combating a global COVID-19 pandemic nowadays, remembering to help and back each other up has never been so important and striking in human history. Therefore, fig fruit can be considered as a functional food for human consumption.
