Ficus 'Chicago' Hardy
Common Name: Hardy Fig
Ships As: 1 Perennial Bare Root #1 Grade
This edible fig can take subfreezing temperatures, dying back in the fall and re-sprouts in the spring. The medium-sized fruit ripens to a delicious, sweetness in late summer and early fall. For northern growers, give it a heavy mulch with hay or leaves when dormant. An excellent candidate for pot culture, this easy-to-grow fig is also known as 'Bensonhurst Purple.' Its origins are from Sicily.
