I loves them Figgy Nu-Nu's!

If I remember correctly, I learned in biology class that figs have a symbiotic relationship with a certain wasp. The wasp lays its eggs in the figs and pollinates it. SO, according to this, we are also eating wasp larvae in the figs. I'll have to look into this because I don't remember the details.
I still love 'em, Larvae or no.
