    Ficus carica. -Fig Chicago Hardy

    Information below is only the potential the plant has. You will be receiving one plant between 3 and 8 inches in height shipped in a 3 inch deep pot.

    Vigorous plant that is an early producer of purple-skinned fruit with reddish flesh. Wonder if your figs are ripe? The fruit stem should be hanging/drooping from the branch and the fruit should be soft. Still not sure? If you pick an unripe fig it will snap off and ooze white liquid indicating it is not ripe. Fig trees can grow for a very long time so be sure to always plan out where you want them to stay or plant them in a container where they will be smaller and you can move them around.
