The fig tree is a symbolic tree that probably originates from the Middle East. It was one of the first fruit-bearing trees to be cultivated long before ancient times, across the Mediterranean basin. Of the 700 existing species of fig, the only species cultivated for its fruit is the Ficus carica.
It appears that flax was first cultivated from the wild Mediterranean species, Linum bienne. It is a plant that needs little water to grow. Flax cultivation is environmentally friendly. Depending on the variety and the method of cultivation, flax, which can have quite a frail appearance, is a plant rich in resources that has been known since the dawn of time for the fibers of its stems and its oil-producing seeds.
