The Ficus carica tree aka Chicago Hardy Fig is self-pollinating, meaning you only need one tree to have fresh fig production. Has a high yield of deliciously, sweet edible fruit that ripens in late summer or early fall depending on your location. The ripe fruit is medium-sized figs with dark mahogany color on the outside and deep purple inside, the same as Brown Turkey.
The lobed leaves have an oblong shape compared to other fig tree leaves.
They are easy to grow cold-hardy fruit trees and can produce over 100 pints of fig fruit during the growing season. The delicious figs are perfect eaten fresh, used in jams or jellies, or dehydrated for later use. Can bear fruit in the first year of tree planting!
