Valley Fig Growers

Fig Paste

Grown and processed in the fertile San Joaquin Valley of California, our Blue Ribbon Fig Paste is 100% pure California Fig, no fillers or additives. Custom-made for you by Valley Fig Growers, Blue Ribbon Fig Paste is specially blended with one or more varieties of Golden and Mission Figs and ground to meet your specification requirements for taste, color, and texture. Because we blend our paste to meet your needs, you are always assured of the finest possible product.

Blue Ribbon Fig Pastes are available in seeded, de-seeded or textured. Deseeded fig paste has the seed character removed and maintains all the fruits’ nutrition.

Textured fig pastes are made with 100% fig products and are available in the following forms:

  A) Soft fig paste that is softer in texture than traditional paste and may be easier to use in some applications. It is a scoopable product somewhat like creamy peanut butter. To make our unique Soft Fig Paste, Valley Fig Growers combines fig paste with fig concentrate to produce a soft, versatile, easy-to-handle product. This value-priced item is ideal for users who do not have the ability to use the firmer traditional fig paste.

  B) Fig Slurry is less viscous than our Soft Fig Paste. Like our Soft 40 Fig Paste it is also made with fig paste and fig concentrate that is semi-pourable with a texture similar to fruit jams/preserves and can be easily spooned or spread with a spatula.

  C) Custom formulations can be made with other fruits and concentrates or sweeteners.

Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice Fig Pastes may be used to economically add flavor and nutrition to any number of baked goods, nutrition bars, sauces, jams, fillings, confections, yogurts, cheeses or ice cream. Blue Ribbon Fig Paste products are Kosher and are available in natural or certified organic. Contact us for further information, usage suggestions and a specification sheet.
