Q.What Is The White Center In Fig Tree Trunks Or Stems?

Zone Louisiana | Anonymous added on November 27, 2021 | Answered

I have some thick fig stems that I’ve been using for carving and I’ve noticed a soft white center through all of them, it feels almost like a fungus, I’m just curious as to what this actually is??

The inside of the fig stems has a milky latex that when dry becomes soft.
