Chicago Hardy Fig Patio Tree | Cold Hardy Fig Trees | Ficus Carica

*Please see shipped as shown photo in 2-3 inch starter nursery pot*

You’ll love the easy to grow Chicago Hardy Fig. It bears loads of the most delicious, medium sized mahogany-colored fruit, and as the name implies, it’s cold hardy enough to survive Chicago’s cold winters. (Hardy to zone 5 with protection during the winter.)

This fig tree is self-pollinating, so it can be grown successfully on its own, without other varieties present. This plant may die back in colder zones, resuming growth the following spring. However, figs will grow on new wood, so cold winters won't bother this plant! Heat and drought-tolerant once established.

Very easy to grow in containers on patios or porches. They thrive in full sun or dappled shade and typically begin bearing fruit within 2 years, making them a great return on investment!

Very healthy baby tree! All planted up in a pot. Great packaging!

Wow! Made it through an Ohio winter!

Almost ashamed to admit this, but I planted this in my garden last year and then completely forgot about it. It came up last month and I had to use a plant ID app to figure it out. 😜 it’s looking great thus far!

Great little trees!

I ordered two of these last year and they are thriving! I haven’t given them any special care other than putting them in bigger pots and they have shot up and branched out. No fruit yet but it’s early in the summer.

Plant Arrived Great - Soooo CUTE!

I was hesitant to order a plant, let alone a tree online. I was happy to see it arrive in excellent condition! Easy to Grow take great care in the packaging of plants and it truly shows. This little Hardy Fig arrived with a few fruit already starting on it. It's definitely small, but I'm hoping that with the proper care my new fig will thrive in the container I planted it in. I have it in full sun on my patio table right now and will pot it up when the time comes. Hopefully in a few years it will look just like the main photo. YAY!

Hope it makes it.

When I received the two trees they were pretty stressed. In the 3 months since I received them one has produced a new leaf and the other is hanging on barely. I hope that the one with a leaf will continue to improve and the other will make it. Some of the second tree's problems are probably my fault. I will update later when I know how the tree does.

Came as really tiny with three small leaves. I potted it and put it outside. It rained and two days later it was dead.
