  Chicago Hardy Fig Tree

Alternative Views:

Ty Ty Nursery began growing the Chicago Hardy fig a few years ago after much attention in mail order catalogs and online blogs created a buzz and excitement of a NEW cold hardy fig that could be successfully grown in Northern States, including Illinois. The cold hardiness of this Chicago Hardy fig has been extensively investigated nationwide and affirmed to be correct by amateur gardeners and nurseries offering the Chicago Hardy fig for sale. This fig tree has been offered for sale, wholesale, to American nurseries by Monrovia Nursery of California.

  • How to Plant a Fig Tree

•     Much controversy has arisen by concerned gardeners on internet blogs about a possible duplicity - causing an identity crisis regarding the application of correct fig names. Some blog contributors claim that The Chicago Hardy Fig is a renamed version of the 'Tennessee Mountain' fig tree that in turn was a mistaken renaming by Dr. Silas Harmon of the Experiment Station Research Station in Tifton, Ga. of a bud sport of the Celeste ( Blue Celestial )fig. Any or all of these purported theories could be true, however, TyTy Nursery does not even offer the 'forerunner' Celeste fig tree any longer, because of the new improved fig hybrid introductions that are available for growing by most backyard gardeners. To settle this mystery and dispute on fig nomenclature, Ty Ty Nursery is offering DNA genetic samples to scientific laboratories, and TyTy will abide by the accurate scientific evidence and resulting proof, as to whether one or the other fig name products should be deleted in future marketing promotions. In the meantime Ty Ty Nursery will continue to offer for sale both fig Cultivars.

x May 26, 2016
Reviewer: Diane Milhan from Mount Airy, NC United States  
Arrived with all leaves smashed at the top of box and now after careful watering all leaves have fallen off or are so dry that they will fall off in a day or two.  I still plan to put the fig into the ground and see what happens.

Disappointing May 22, 2016
Reviewer: J Gall from Stony Point, NY United States  
Purchased the Chicago Hardy Fig Tree around March 2016. The four foot high tree arrived well boxed but every leaf was pruned off.  Basically, a four foot long stick.  It's been planted and watered now for basically three of months.  It's dead. I called TyTy company and was told the tree is dormant. It's dead. It would have been better to purchase the fig tree at a local garden center. Very disappointing experience with TyTy.

Reviewer: Sandra DeCicco from Wallingford , CT United States  
The box was all wrecked upon arrival, it arrived on May 17 our original date you sent us was the 16th. We planted it as soon as we opened it. The leaves are all dead and are beginning to fall off. We are not sure its going to survive and for the price this is not what we expected.

Not impressed! May 3, 2016
Reviewer: PAUL MOBLEY from SEYMOUR, TN United States  
Tree only had one branch off of the trunk and wilted dead leaves that are no longer on the tree. Still waiting to see if I will get any new branches and leaves. Can’t believe I paid $75 plus for this Charley Brown tree! Glad I have a warranty on this tree but they should pay me some reimbursement amount for all my trouble if it doesn’t survive and I have to dig it up, send it back, and wait for another one to be shipped to me. Hoping it will recover somehow.
