Chicago Hardy produces high yields of tasty, medium-sized brown figs which ripen mid-summer to early fall. It is self-pollinating. At maturity, the Chicago Hardy fig can reach a height of 10 to 12 feet and a width of 9 to 10 feet. Chicago Hardy is very heat tolerant and prefers well-drained soil. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8.

First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Plant fig trees in loamy soil and in a northern exposure. They need plenty of sunlight and room in order to grow and thrive. Fertilize once a year. Fig trees only require light pruning which should be done in late winter.

Great service and fig tree


plants in good condition but box was almost broken apart

the plants are excellent with no damage however the box was almost torn apart just above the pots. appears that two corners of the box were cut open apparently to promote air flow and this weakened the box to the point of failure

Green leaves upon delivery!

Have not yet planted the tree, snow remains on the ground.

First Order from PlantMeGreen

I received my 2 Chicago Hardy Figs this afternoon, and they were in excellent condition! The box was clearly marked with handles to make it easy to carry. My plants arrived in really good condition with plenty of information about keeping and planting the trees.
