Hardy Chicago – Very Cold Hardy!
Yep, it was found growing in south Chicago, Illinois and its a winner. Even when the top dies back this fig springs back and has late season figs. A small to medium, brown to purplish fig with sweet rich dark red flesh. If you are in Zone 6 be sure to put the plant in a protected spot. Small eye and solid interior keeps fruit rot out. Fruit ripens from August/September to frost. Zones 6-8.
