More Information

Description Boasting the title of "The Hardiest Fig," 'Chicago Hardy' (Ficus carica) grows even in zone 5, meaning even colder climates can add this fan favorite to their landscape! Sweet purple-brown figs ripen in early-mid autumn each year, while its distinctive foliage has a pleasant fragrance. Be sure to plant in full sun and a protected location for best results in cold climates. While it may die back to the ground in cold areas, have no fear as it regrows from the roots and will come back year after year with proper care and conditions. Details Botanical name: Ficus carica 'Chicago Hardy'
Common name: Fig
Zone: 5-9
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun).
Height x width: 10-20 ft x 12-22 ft
Flower color: Brown fruits
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer
Uses: Best in a vegetable garden.  
How To Grow Soil: Does best in neutral to slightly alkaline soils (pH 7.0 or higher). Moist but well-drained soils are best. Can tolerate some dryness once established.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day). We highly recommend planting in a warm, protected spot in cold climates where the plants will be sheltered from blasts of cold air. Against a south-facing brick wall is ideal.
Water: Average.
Space: Plant 10-20 ft apart
Fertilizing:  High fertility is recommended for best crop, especially in cold climates. Apply a granular garden or rose fertilizer in early spring, then again in late spring and in early summer. Tomato fertilizer is a good alternative.
Winterizing & Maintenance: Mulch at least 3" deep in cold climates. May die back to the ground in cold areas but will regrow from the roots. A long, warm season will produce the best fruit; harvest before a frost hits if necessary. Be sure to plant in an area with protection for best results in zone 5.

Chicago Fig Tree

My trees arrived on time and in great condition. I repotted them and so far they are both thriving. I will be ordering more from this company. The plants are really exceptional.

These 2 little trees came in such healthy condition with tons of leaves. I haven't planted them in my yard yet, I plan to overwinter them inside this year. I was (am) very happy with them so far.

Beautiful plant

Well packed, arrived in beautiful condition with multiple branches. Started making figs 2 weeks after I planted it but I removed them so it could put its full energy into roots & leaves. I will wrap it up for the winter in a month and look forward to good growth & a few figs next year. Very happy with this fig tree!
