Hardy Chicago Fig - Ficus carica Celeste Fig - Ficus caprica
Fig Hardy Chicago ripe fruit A brown fig, rich and sweet. Good for potted culture, although it is our most dependable outdoor fig. Hardy Chicago ripens its figs from August until fall frost and will have some fruit in July. Has produced as many as 100 pints of figs in one season. Does extremely well in NC and we send this one to enthusiasts up north, because of its early fruiting tendency. Success will vary with every location, so be sure to give it the warmest, most protected place. It's our best fig and came to our attention in the 1970's when cuttings for propagation came from Fred Borne, a North American Fruit Explorer member. Cuttings were supplied to him from a man from Chicago with a "U" shaped house, from a bush he had protected for some years. Without protection the mature bushes top would die back from winter cold, but sprouted from the roots and ripened some figs at the end of the season. Most fig varieties do not share this trait. Usually, a fig's above ground growth must survive the winter in order to fruit the following season. Leaves are the 5-lobed type and the plant has a bush form in the east. Space 8' to 10' circle in Zone 7. Zones 6-8.

Lattarulla Fig Verte (Green Ischia) - Ficus carica
Fig Latterulla At our nursery Lattarulla ripens its yellow figs earlier then all others, usually starting in June or July. Because of fluctuating winter weather, these buds can become damaged and not fruit as much as in milder regions such as the Pacific Northwest. The fall crops are inferior fruit because they need pollination from a fig wasp that only lives in Europe in fig producing countries or parts of California. King fig seems to be the same as Lattarulla. Also called Danny's Delight, this fig has ripened its fruit near Lake Michigan outside. Figs are large, pale green to yellow, sweet and delicious. Fruits are well worth the effort since they are the first to ripen, usually in mid-June at our nursery. Success will vary in zones 6-8. Space @ 10' circles

Fig Verte Verte ripens about the same time as LSU Purple, so best to grow in zone 7 - 8. In a long season fruits will dry on the tree around October. Very sweet and good for drying. Since they ripen with their outside color green, they will fool the birds. The dark red flesh is in total contrast to the green skin. Strawberry is used to describe the inside color of the fruit. Also called Green Ischia. In our area plants are bush like and of small stature like Violet de Bordeaux. Fruits are exceptional and lighter colored figs are more bird resistant if that is a problem in your area. Space about 8' - 10' circle in Zone 6 - 7 and space @ 12'-15' circle in Zone 8.
