'Olympian' is a ultra cold hardy fig & absolutely delicious. This fig produces very sweet fruits with thin purple skin and a red to violet flesh. Olympia is hardy to zone 6 and the Pacific Northwest. Olympian Fig is self-fertile, low maintenance, fast-growing, can be grown in a container and is easy to grow!

Ficus carica ‘Olympian’ is a Washington state native, an original heirloom to now-protected land. Ficus carica will flourish in a number of environments, but is partial to a sunny, Mediterranean-like growing season, and dry, cool winters. Nourish this easy-to-grow fig tree variety for an abundance of round, subtle sweet fruits about the size of a tangerine. Pick and eat fresh, or harvest an entire crop to bring into your kitchen. The Olympian Fig will inspire new recipes both sweet and savory, providing you with a sanguine, reliably juicy fruit for every harvest.
