Fig Hardy Chicago

One of the most cold hardy of all figs. A good choice for growing in mountain areas of zones 6-8. Best quality is achieved in late summer/early fall. Other varieties are better for prime fig growing areas of the South, but Hardy Chicago may be the ONLY option in less favorable winter climate fig growing areas. Bareroot. Zones 6-8
  • Zone 6-8
  • Height 15 - 30 feet. May be trimmed to as short as 6 feet.
  • Light Requirements Full sun to part shade. Fruit will be sweeter when the tree gets more direct sun.
