ℹ Neither summers heat nor winters sleet impairs the harvest of perfect figs! Life is about compromise, right? We are told we have to give a little to get a little. That's why florist roses last long in the vase - but have no scent. And grocery store strawberries are huge and red and beautiful to behold - but have no taste. So you would expect that a tropical fig tree bred to brave the harshest winters of Chicago - surely the fruit must be lacking a bit of... something. Sometimes it is great to be wrong! The Chicago Hardy Fig is one of the finest fruiting fig trees known. Large, extended yields of rich, dark purple fruit are sweet and juicy and taste of sunshine. Excellent for eating raw, straight from the tree yet holding its shape for antipasto dishes like prosciutto wrapped figs and goat cheese (yum!). The tree itself is a lush beauty of large, three-lobed leaves that forms a handsome screen in the garden. Quickly reaching up to well-branched 30 feet tall when planted in the ground, it will happily grow in a large container on the patio, or accept pruning to keep it as compact as just 6 feet tall. Easy to grow, easy to please and so very easy to love - it's time you plant a fig tree in your garden!
