Chicago Hardy Fig - Ficus carica 'Chicago Hardy'

Chicago Hardy Fig is capable of surviving in zone 5, but likely to die back to the ground in winter and come up again the following spring. It is noted for its attractive foliage. Green, inconspicuous flowers are followed by green pear shaped fruits that ripen to a dark mahogany colour early fall. The fruit is rich and sweet and can be eaten fresh, stored, canned or dried. Most of the fruit grows on new growth. Can be grown in containers to overwinter inside in colder climates. Self pollinating.
