Figs on the Lower Coast.
The culture of figs comes next
to the culture of apples, if we
have faith in the Adtmic legend
that refers to the apple culture
in the Gorden of Eden and to the ý/
subseqdnt use made by Adam
and Eve of fig leaves as clothing.
Any way, the Jig is frequently
mentionee in the bldesl literature
in the world's possession and it .
has been a staple article of foed
.in Asia for thousonds of years.
In Afganistan the fig grows wild
and from that distant center its '
easy culture seems to have "oro

and transportation of them. On
