Description

‘Olympian’ is a ultra cold hardy fig and absolutely delicious! This fig produces large, very sweet fruits with thin purple skin and deep colored red-violet flesh. Reliably produces an early  Breba crop (fruit produced on old wood) in May and another larger crop in late summer. Plants will bear fruit at 2-3 years. Self-pollinating. Height 4-10′.

Figs can be grown as trees or pruned to be kept as bushes. In cooler zones, fig branches die back to ground in winter and re-grow again each year, generally maintaining a bushy appearance. The main fruit crop occurs on the current year’s growth although some varieties also have an additional early crop (Breba crop) on old growth. Figs prefer moist, well-drained soil and can be grown in containers or the landscape.
