Chicago Hardy Fig
Chicago Hardy Fig is a special cultivar that withstands the colder temperatures of the north, unlike other fig varieties. The plant dies back in the winter and has the ability to re-sprout every year producing crops of medium-sized fruit, ripening late summer into fall. Big, curvy & grass green, tropical-looking leaves provide a visually stunning and unique landscape plant. It is best to give the fig the warmest and most protective place in the landscape; this, along with mulching over the cold season, will bring great success in a northern garden. Can grow to 12’ when provided with the right conditions. Plants grown in 1 liter containers. Zone 5-10.

Figs can be planted directly in the ground, after the last frost, in a protected sunny area near your house. There should be at least 1" of organic material on top. The remainder of the soil can be of poor quality. Soil too rich will produce meager growth and a limited crop. When new growth comes up from the ground, select only a few shoots to mature. Prune all others so that plenty of sun can reach between each branch. New growth can produce figs the same year.
