Keith & Chris,
Thanks, I have looked at the information on the
germplasm pages, and frankly it leaves me more than a
little uncertain. Still, it is nice to know I can
order from them if I have the need. Somehow, I seem to
go looking for the strangest things (from commercial
points of view) on a regular basis. Ever try to build
a vacuume system for collecting honey bees? The box
was easy, the clear smooth walled hose that doesn't
collapse under vacuume or bending was harder,
connecting the hose to the box took days of searching.
I seem to get into such odd projects at least twice a

The link above is by a person in Bulgaria that has found olive trees growing
at a local agricultural university. There are two picures given. One is a
fig tree that died in a previous extremely cold winter. The other is of an
olive that survived under the same conditions. The olive tree appears to be
thriving, from the photo. Recent temperature in Bulgaria is near 0'F. I
did some research recently that indicated that the hardiest olive trees
could only survive down to about 10'F. This is proof that there are a few
olive trees that are even hardier than that. No mention was made of the
fruit it produces, if it happens at all. I hope this guy can propogate it
and start sharing it with others.
