Savor sweet, dark mahogany fruit with rich red flesh with the 1 pc. Hardy Chicago Fig Tree. It is indigenous to Sicily, where the variety is known to have been growing at about 3000 feet above sea level where it gets quite cold. It gained a reputation in Chicago where cuttings somehow made their way to the U.S. with the help of an Italian gardener. The tree flourishes despite the harsh winters. Perhaps the coldest hardy fig ever discovered they will yield large amounts of fruit in the garden or dwarfed in containers. And it is fast growing too! In many instances it can produce fruit first year; by second year fruit will appear on old growth in early summer and then in the fall fruit will begin to appear on new growth. This is why this is the highest yielding fig plant around, with two periods of fruiting and up to 100 pints of figs each year!
