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.
