Unless it is a Fig that is meant to survive the cold, it is best to assume that it will not survive that far out of its native region. Some cold hardy figs can have trouble in zones as low as this, as well.

It will be best to maintain it as a container plant to avoid the death of the tree.

This article will help you to care for them in container: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/growing-figs-in-pots.htm
