Fig, Chicago Hardy (2 Plants, Ships March-June)

1 Review | Write a Review

This is an exciting new delicious offer! Chicago Hardy fig originates from Sicily, but became popular in Chicago. It is productive, easy to grow, and bears dark mahogany medium-size figs. Amazingly it is drought, heat AND cold tolerant. In colder climates, the fig will die back and resume growth in spring. Fruit produced on the older wood will appear in early summer, and fruit on new growth will appear in early fall. It is self-pollinating and fine-grained. Grow in pots or in the ground, in partial shade to full sun from zone 5 - 10.

Please consider these terms before ordering live plants: Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of March to the end of May. We will try to ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed exact delivery dates. Plants may arrive too early and have to be kept inside until the weather warms. Plants may arrive late, as well. Due to the sensitive nature of small plants, there is the possibility of a crop failure. If such a situation occurs, we will do our best to issue you a refund in a timely manner. Last minute losses can occur at any point in our shipping timeline, and we may have to issue a refund even late in the season. No orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs; you just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER MARCH 1, 2018)

What are the pros? Bears fruit second year!

What are the cons? can look weedy


Our Chicago Fig took off like bat out of hell! We planted ours three years ago, it's first winter we had several weeks of sub-zero temperatures. Even as a new planting, it survived! Every summer it grows bigger than the year before, and bears lots of large, tasty figs! We do very little care, just cutting it back after the first freeze. It's planted near the house, so the ground might not get as cold as other places in the yard, but it has certainly not been pampered.
