Despite its name, this variety did not actually originate in Chicago, but was likely brought to the area by Italian immigrants in the 1800s. It is believed to be a descendant of the Mediterranean fig and was able to thrive even in the harsh, urban environment of the city. Today, it is a popular choice for both home gardeners and commercial growers due to its hardiness and delicious fruit.
