Roberta's 1-piece Chicago Hardy Fig Tree is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from No figs ever! I got this a couple of years ago. The first year, it grew okay but never bore fruit. I expected that because they did say you might not get fruit till your second year. The second year, it came back, but NO fruit. No blossoms or any indication it was even a fruit-bearing plant. Then it died. Because it was over a year old, there was no warranty on it. This isn't the first of Roberta's plants to die on my, either in the first or second season.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy I got this fig tree last year and it came all welted so called and got a replacement and it did ok until winter.It is just a stick in the ground ! Not happy so called Roberta’s and the girl told me they can’t replace a replacement ! WHAT ! They are the ones who sent me the first tree all but dead . I had no choice but to get a replacement due to them sending me the first tree all welted almost dead . Told her I’m not happy about this and all she said was I’m sorry ma’am I can’t send you a replacement . So called QVC to tell them about Roberta’s response and he said he was so sorry about that and gave me a credit for the tree ! I won’t buy from Roberta’s very again !!!!!! But on the bright side QVC always comes thru !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Figs first season! I followed the directions for planting, my fig tree grew surprisingly large. I planted a fig tree purchased locally right before Purchasing this one. Roberta’s fig tree grew 3 times larger and produced figs, whereas the locally purchased one did not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful figs and cold hardy I bought this a few years ago. They arrived healthy and did okay the first year. I had planted one in the garden and the other in a large pot on my deck. The one on the deck that got more sun did really well. They both survived a horribly cold winter. I ended up moving the one that I'd planted in the garden the next year because it didn't get enough sun...and planted it in another large pot. This second year I got lots of figs and did learn how long to leave them on the tree to ripen before picking them. Individual fresh figs at my grocery store are $1.00 each and usually are too ripe and mushy...these figs off the vine are so much better. So I think you should try this fig plant...either in a sunny place in your garden with lots of room around it to grow or in a large pot in a place that gets lots of sun. I did find them to be winter hardy in the Washington, DC area. The foliage is also very attractive all summer long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Took A While I ordered these several years ago and they grew but no figs. Last year I threatened them I actually told the plant if they do don’t produce last summer they would be dug up. It worked! They made figs all summer! So I think they are more like a regular fruit tree where you need 4 or 5 years for fruit. They have survived very cold winters for VA. So don’t give up and sometimes ultimatums work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fig Tree The tree arrived in great condition last spring. It was planted and grew to about 3feet by fall. It actually produced two miniature figs! The foliage was beautiful and lush. After a very cold couple of winter weeks I went out to check on its condition. I'm glad I did because an animal, most likely a rabbit, had gnawed most of the bark off and the stems away from the roots! I brought it inside and laid it in the sink with water while I YouTubed fig trees. Many people had great luck with propagating from cuttings so I followed some instructions and now have remaining stems with bark in the beginning stages of rooting. Wish me luck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 Small Fig! Hardly what I was promised this Fig Tree would produce! I did everything you sent me in the instructions. What are you going to do about it?
