Olympian Fig – Super Sweet and Cold Hardy!
Olympian is one of the few very cold hardy figs and it’s delicious! The large (tangerine size!) fruit is very sweet with a thin purple skin and red to violet flesh. Discovered by retired biologist Denny McGaughy in Olympia, Washington, Olympian has been confirmed to be a distinct cultivar via DNA testing when compared with the 270 varieties at the USDA ARS Germplasm Repository in California. Introduced in 2014. Ripens in July. Zone 6-10.
