Ficus carica 'Olympian'

‘Olympian’ is a ultra cold hardy fig & absolutely delicious.  One of the best tasting and most reliable figs in cooler regions like the PNW.  This fig produces very sweet XL fruits with thin purple-striped skin and a red to violet flesh.  This newly available fig from Olympia, Washington regularly ripens a sizeable crop in an August and often ripens a fall crop in cool summer areas where other varieties fail.   Along with the larger-growing 'Desert King', 'Olympian' is a good bet for cool summer areas.

Notably, this fig prolifically produces XL fruit on a compact plant, making it an excellent choice for containers and smaller gardens spaces.

Discovered by retired biologist Denny McGaughy, he named it after the city where he found it in a sheltered location. Denny worked with Malli Aradhy, a geneticist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Clonal Germplasm Repository to conduct DNA test to find out if it was a known cultivar. It did not match any of the 200+ figs in the repository. It appears Denny has found a unique heirloom variety that produces well in cool & coastal climates.
