Well, not so much for the hardiness test, but I'd like to have multiple figs in the hole for the curiosity of it and to save space.
Will it work out?

Steve, there is multiple thread & photo documentation of which
varieties work the best in ground in Zone 6/7 on Figs4Fun. In fact
there are a number of folks from NJ on that forum with loads of
experiences. It's an inspiring resource & there are some true fig nuts
on there.

zone 6, eventually all of them will die to the ground and balance among the 
varieties will for a while begin anew.
