Hardy Fig


Hardy Fig

Excellent cold hardiness! Originally discovered in the Versailles gardens thriving during the colder winter months, this special variety would be cold hardy in a protected area in zone 6. Due to it's compact form, it can also be grown in a larger pot in colder areas. The sweetly flavored fruit has a nice red blush, and great for baking or eating fresh. Grows 3-5' tall and wide in sunny to lightly shaded areas. Zones 6-10.
