can other variety figs be used to pollinate one Olympian fig?
Jay T on Jul 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Figs are self pollinating and do not require another tree to bear fruit. However when yo plant different varieties this does make for larger crop yields.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!

My Olympian Fig
Lol, this plant came in the Stark air pot on July 25 (a week back) to my zone 7B home in central Alabama. When the young fig arrived, it had three leaves growing from hand size and smaller. It also came with two figs the size of the end of my thumb growing on it. I repotted it in a five gallon pot using Miracle Grow potting soil and placed it in a protected area by the side of my home. The three leaves have all continued to grow larger, as well as the two figs. The two figs are each now a good 1 1/2 inch in diameter. Looks like I'll be getting to taste the difference between my Chicago Hardy figs and the Olympian this year. My Brown Turkey fig still hasn't produced a single fig after two years now. It's amazing how this young fig arrived with figs growing, and how prolifically the young Chicago Hardy figs have produced within the first year of their planting. Could not be happier with this new addition.
