Cold-Hardy Figs, Organic and Hassle-Free
Why USDA Organic Cold Hardy Fig Trees?
Meticulously grown and nurtured to withstand some of the coldest winter temperatures, the Chicago Hardy Fig Tree is durable and even comes back strong after freezing…delivering rich, robust figs in the harshest climates of the country.
You get bushels of delectable figs a season after the most intense winter weather, and even better, you get them organically-grown. Organic, healthful growth means that pesticides and harsh sprays are unnecessary. Plus, the Chicago Hardy Fig can be trimmed and maintained at a height as short as 6 feet, so it fits in any space.
From apartment terraces to small spaces indoors, this tree grows plump, juicy figs with soft, delicious flesh and high-quality flavor. They’re ideal for plucking, peeling and eating directly off the tree. And you can enjoy mouth-watering figs the first season after you plant, with a harvest in late summer to early fall. Best of all, the Chicago Hardy Fig Tree will provide as many as 12 gallons of figs each season!

Customer Reviews & Photos

The tree arrived great. I had prev purchased one several years ago and it reached over 6' high so my expectations were/are high. So far this tree doesn't seem as happy as the last but I'm not giving up yet. Giving it 4 stars because I think its "me" and not the tree.
Arrived with no leaves, so I’m trusting that it will sprout. Came with no instructions either, which would have made me feel more confident.
It's completely normal for your plant to be dormant right now. Please let us know by the end of May if there are still no signs of life. Be sure to check out our resource center for planting directions and care! https://www.fast-growing-trees.com/pages/resource-center

Disease free and healthy!! Quality trees and scrubs! Thank you!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Keep in mind that Fig Trees perform best in full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). Fig Trees grown indoors should be placed by large, sunny windows or placed in a sunny spot on your patio.
Select a container that’s slightly larger than the root ball (2 sizes larger than the initial container the fig came in works best). Add a mixture of potting soil and organic planting mix to the container before you place your tree in it. Make sure your tree stands straight up in its container and give it a good drink of water until you see water coming out the bottom of the pot. If your pot doesn’t contain drainage holes, you can quickly add a few with a small drill.
2. Watering: For young Fig Trees, we recommend watering once or twice per week. Once established, your Fig Tree will need to be watered once a week or once every two weeks.
But if you’re not sure when to water, feel your soil - if it feels like it’s drying out close to the surface, then it’s time to water your tree. Give your tree a drink until you see water draining from the holes at the bottom of the pot.
3. Fertilizing: Figs won’t usually require fertilizing, but if you want to bolster your tree's growth, do so in the early spring with a slow-release, well-balanced organic fertilizer, like formula 10-10-10.
4. Pruning: Prune your Fig during winter by removing any low-growing branches or foliage (also called suckers). Also, remove any dead or damaged branches to encourage fruit growth.
