The Chicago Hardy Fig is a cold-hardy and versatile fruit-bearing shrub, known for its ability to withstand colder climates. This deciduous plant boasts vibrant green, lobed leaves that provide a lush backdrop to its delicious fruit.

The fruit produced by the Chicago Hardy is pear-shaped and has a smooth, brownish-purple skin when ripe. The sweet, honey-like flavor of the figs makes them a delightful addition to both fresh consumption and culinary endeavors. It typically produces fruit in late summer to early fall. The plant usually begins bearing fruit within its first year, with a more substantial yield as it matures. It is a self-pollinating variety, meaning it does not require cross-pollination with another plant to set fruit.

Chicago Hardy Figs typically grow as a multi-branched shrub with a spreading habit. In optimal conditions, they can reach a height of 10 to 15 feet, creating a beautiful, compact structure that is well-suited for both gardens and containers.

It is exceptionally hardy, thriving in USDA Hardiness Zones 6 to 10. Its ability to withstand colder temperatures makes it an ideal choice for regions with harsh winters.
