Fig heaven: Vazashen village

Once famous for its vineyards, the grape fields of Vazashen were left across the border after the 1990s war. Nowadays, the people of Vazashen have to be satisfied by their home yards. 

Almost everything grows here, but the one fruit one can find at every step is fig. Moreover, it is harvested twice a year.  

Over the years, Vazashen has converted from being the homeland of grapes to the homeland of fig.
