Olive trees that survive cold winters?

I was wondering if anyone knows any good olive trees that can survive harsh cold winters? Where i live it gets closer to -40 celcius during the winters but it's hot all summer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Olive trees that survive cold winters?

Sorry, but olives are a mediterranean tree and there are no olive trees that survive harsh winters. There are some dwarf olive tree varieties. If you have enough indoor space and light, you could try growing one of those in a large pot and bringing it in for the winter.
