Have Sweet Figs by July
Grows to a mature height of 15-30 feet with large green leaves. The Chicago Hardy Fig Tree is self-fertile and will produce sweet coffee-colored golf ball-sized figs. They have a bright appetizing strawberry flesh, and an addictive flavor. You will produce succulent figs that will become so addictive.

Health Benefits
You get rich, juicy, and sweet figs, which promote bone density, and are high in fiber, magnesium, copper, and potassium which helps lower blood pressure. If you smash dried leaves and figs from your tree, they can be used as a natural remedy to relieve sore throats. But wait, it doesn't stop there. Figs also have powerful antioxidants believed to help fight off disease.

Carefree Tree
Early homesteaders would commonly have several fig trees. They are naturally pest and disease resistant and provide a reliable crop year after year. The Chicago Hardy is one of the tastiest no-fuss fig trees that you can grow. It's drought-tolerant, meaning it can withstand dry climates and limited watering. It also adapts to various soils as well!

Plant more than one tree and enjoy figs year-round.
