Fig Trees - OlympianFicus carica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6-10
One of the few cold tolerant figs with a sweet (and huge!) fruit. The Olympian Hardy Fig Tree, introduced in 2014, produces two crops of very large green and purple striped fruit with sweet, violet flesh that is excellent for fresh eating, canning or drying. This award-winning variety was discovered in Washington State, where it thrives and produces large figs with tender purple skin with a very sweet red to purple flesh. Its cold hardy breba crop can ripen as early as May and is known to withstand temperatures into the teens. The plant itself is hardy down to zero degrees once well established even though it will freeze to the ground only to return in the spring and bear a crop of fruit the following summer. It is best-suited for cool, maritime climates and can grow up to 10 feet high by 10 feet wide.
USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
This tree was so healthy when it arrived! It had several figs already on it. I would not hesitate to order from this company again. They have excellent customer service, and the tree arrived quickly. Thank you so much!
