what other fruit to use if figs are not in season?

I planned on making an appetizer for an event this weekend and Figs are not in season. Can you recommend another fruit in it's place with Gorgonzola on Crostini with sprinkles of honey? Thank you

Another fruit to consider would be apple.

If you would consider using preserves instead of fresh fruit and honey, fig preserves or quince paste would be good.

The other day, I roasted black grapes at 400 degrees with olive oil and salt for about 20 minutes. Then put them on crostini with a soft cheese and honey sprinkled with mint and a couple grinds of black pepper. It was delicious!

Sweet of date with the salt tang of the cheese!
