I recently bought some of these (Zagros figs), because I was simply so charmed by their cuteness. They're basically mini-figs! They're also rock-hard (I failed to check this before hand, I saw how tiny and cute they were and just started scoopin'...)
I have never heard of them nor tried this variety of figs.
You can soaked them overnight in juice or filtered water to soften them up. Or cook them in a hot liquid/juice to poach them; then you can make a fig compoa\st from the poached figs once they have cooled, if desired.
