Figs keep, refrigerated, for 3 to 4 days. Store in a single layer on a paper towel and lightly cover with plastic wrap, or place in an egg carton for extra protection. You can also freeze them for up to 6 months; they will be very soft when thawed (best for cooked or pureed uses). Here are some of the most common varieties.
