‘Chicago Hardy’ Fig

$22.00$40.00

Finally a fig worthy of Kootenay growing!

Chicago Hardy Figs are hardy to Canada Zone 6. A must for the experienced gardener; with a bit of effort, they can be grown outside like a bush! For average growers in the Kootenays, Figs can be grown in pots which can be taken inside overwinter for survival through dormancy. Nothing quite like a fresh fig from your own tree! Very productive as it is able to produce fruit on both the new and old woods. May die back in colder climates and resume growth from the base in spring. Fruit ripens to a dark mahogany-purple colour from July until frost. Self-pollinating.

 

*Note: We do not offer replacements for poor winter management of your fig tree. These figs are on the edge of cold hardiness for the Kootenay region. Plant at your own risk.

 

Available as: #01 Potted and #02 Potted
