My parents have a fig tree and, apart from the occasional worm or bug that might reside in the fig and then be eaten by us, those figs are vegan and grown with vegan methods (we basically just water the tree).
I was reading this article that explained how some vegetarians refused to eat them because of dead wasps inside. I thought that particular detail was silly, but not this part:
To prevent this, farmers separate male and female trees over great distances. Farmers also supply a controlled number of new wasps, often delivered in paper sacks, to dictate exactly how many females have access to a given plant. This means fewer wasps inside when the time comes to harvest.
So my question is: are commercial figs that you find in most stores usually made with this method where wasps are delivered in paper sacks to the farm? This would - in my opinion - rule out commercial figs as a vegan fruit.
