Due to two years of severe nursery losses, our board of directors has changed our focus. Rather than bareroot propagation and sales, we are shifting to education and the care and maintenance of our historic Mother Orchard.
Please consider becoming a member (below) and donating to help continue our work.

Thanks to Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply (originally started by our founder Amigo Bob Cantisano), a collection of some of our favorite species and varieties will be available through them for the 2024/25 Bareroot Season.

Product Details

We have yet to identify this variety, but it is so flavorful that we are introducing it with an alias. This is a small fruited, very prolific variety with highly complex flavored fruit, almost black skin and amazing dark red juice. One of the top rated in our cherry taste tests, 25-27° Brix. Great for juice, jam and sauces. The seed has a very delicious almond flavor that may have been used to make pastry flavoring by our ancestors. Apparently self fertile, does not need a pollenizer variety. Sets a large crop, every year! Ripens late June to mid July at 2900’.

The old grandmother tree grows happily through a deck in Downieville at 2900’ along the North Yuba River. Downieville is the seat of Sierra County, and was a thriving mining camp settled in 1849, a beautiful community rich in history, including great food producing plants. It is populated with many historic trees that we will be introducing over the next several years, including cherries, pears, apples, chestnuts, walnuts, roses and more.
