For a contemporaneous German account of figs, see Johann Georg Künitz, Oeconomische (Oekonomisch-technologische) Engyclopädie, oder allgemeines System Staats=Stadt=Haus= u. Landwirthschaft, in alphabetischer Ordnung (Berlin, 1777), ii.433-4: 'Figs, the fleshy fruit of the fig tree and the tree itself, which is among the plants of mixed sexes. . . This tree, so remarkable in natural history, traveled from Asia to Greece and Italy, from there to France and gradually the rest of Europe.'
