'Hardy Chicago' fig cutting kept indoors

Two days ago I got to eat an almost ripe fig. It wasn't as sweet as ones grown in sunshine, but for January it was still kind of cool. We'd rooted this cutting in a two-liter soda bottle bottom. It was intended to be planted over at my brother's house, but it got so late into Fall and then it started fruiting... so we figured we'd just keep it indoors until Spring. The yellowish one on the right looks like it'll be ripe soon too. Who knew - fruiting figs could be houseplants.
