This unique syrup is a dark-colored, luscious, and fully natural sweetener, quite similar to the grape syrup. It's a delightful fruity addition, ideal for topping on salads, ice-creams/gelato, tarts but also over your favorite cheese.

The Dry Figs of Kymi come from trees of the homonymous variety, cultivated exclusively in the borders of the Municipalities of Kymi and Konistra of the Province of Karystia, Evia. Their final form is special, as it consists of two dried figs torn in half and glued to one with their inside. This is the ancient process named "Askada", hence the homonymous brand name. Their processing requires several stages and a special technique, producing excellent quality products, recognized as PDO since 1996.

According to testimonies, the appearance of the Figs of Kymi in their current form is very old (from the middle of the 19th century). They are inextricably linked to the special microclimate of the area, but until the final stage, however, they have to go through a long "journey" until they reach your table. In specific, each fig goes through a minimum of 30 hands, as only the experienced hands of local women can understand the difference in a fig that has started to sour. Their processing and packaging are quite meticulous, due to their special form and shape and the non-use of preservatives, which result in the Dry Figs of Kymi always remaining natural and of the highest quality.

The sycamore tree that thrives in the area of ​​Kimi is mentioned as a separate variety. It is tall, has a very deep root system, and yields very good yields from the fifteenth year of its age, which ranges on average from 50-70 kg of fresh figs per tree. The fruit is large in size, rich in the flesh, as well as water and sugars. The bark is light green and relatively thin. The special environment of the area prevents the multiplication of the wax maker, the biggest enemy of the fig tree, with the result that the sycamore tree does not need fertilizers, while it is maintained with the water that absorbs from the rains. Every year, about 150 tons are produced from 22 villages (Vitala, Oxylithos, Andronianoi, Kalimerianoi, Potamia, Metochi, Pyrgos, Taxiarches, etc.) which have 25,000 trees.

This fig syrup is a versatile ingredient you can use as a natural sweetener, over your yogurt, salads, or ice-cream and add in your smoothie or breakfast shake. Ideal to drizzle over your favorite cheese and to create your own home-made dressing, for a burst of flavor and succulent fruity tone. Last but not least a favorite way to use, is to mix with a spirit and create a cocktail with amazing taste and unique texture. Enjoy an authentic sweet delight transcending through the centuries of beloved Greek tradition!

Wanna read an amazing fig story?

Let’s start with the word “Askada”. Askada comes from the ancient Greek word for figs, “ischada”.  Nowadays, in the local dialect of Kymi, Askada is called the final product that comes from two sundried figs opened and pressed together.

Askada Farm was established by Evaggelia and Stathis with love and respect to the special variety of figs that grow in this particular place in Greece, Kymi, Evia island.

Over the past few years, Evaggelia and Stathis have been operating a fig farm beside Melas river, close to the village Andronianoi, which is dedicated to organic cultivation and committed to offering you the unique taste of these precious figs.

Just in this very place in Greece can be found the trees that give birth to such fruits with delicate skin and remarkable taste, along with the unique process Evvagelia and Stathis follow to dehydrate them.

Every year in August, a group of people becomes a company that unites its forces to produce the ASKADA fig.

The fig of Kymi for you to enjoy!
