Self-Fruitful Trees Don't Need Cross-Pollination

Many types of fruiting trees can't set fruit unless they're cross-pollinated by another tree, which means you have to purchase at least two trees. But a fig tree is different '– it's "self-fruitful," which means that it can bear fruit without any pollinating help from a companion tree.

Carefree Tree

Early homesteaders would commonly have several fig trees. They are naturally pest and disease-resistant and provide a reliable crop year after year. The Chicago Hardy is one of the tastiest no-fuss fig trees that you can grow. It's drought-tolerant, meaning it can withstand dry climates and limited watering. It also adapts to various soils as well!

Plant more than one tree and enjoy figs year-round.

Container Planting

If you live in an area with heavy winters or have a small yard, consider planting your fig tree in a container. With proper pruning, it can grow up to 10 feet tall. Be sure to bring it inside when the weather freezes and place it in a sunny warm spot. While your container tree probably won’t produce fruit, it will still provide ornamental value to your surroundings.
