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. 

Stay Tuned…

A huge shout out to Sweetland Mercantile in North San Juan, CA for working with us. Thank you for supporting them with your purchases.

Fat Fig

In stock
Product Details

No one knows what this fig is and THE MOTHER TREE WAS CUT DOWN!!!!!! 🙁 It is amazing and we may be the only organization offering this variety. and now that the mother has been chopped down, who knows. very sad

This is the fattest fig we have found. Although yet an unidentified variety, it is an amazing fig that produces prolifically. It has heavy ribbing and a little Star of David at the calyx. When ripe the skin attains purple, blue and green colors. Gorgeous, delicious, strawberry flesh. Ripens in August at 2700'. A Gem! We may be the only group offering it.

Please Note: It is too expensive to ship figs individually right now, but will ship them when ordered with other bare root trees.


The grandmother tree is a very old untended large and very productive specimen thriving in downtown Grass Valley, Nevada County, CA. at 2700', a Gold Rush era, thriving, mining town which had many famous surface and hardrock mines including Empire Mine, now a state historic park. Empire was one of the richest hard rock mines in history. You can visit the museum today, an actual mine shaft, many Gillet trees, a rose garden -with some Gillet varieties, rock and glass greenhouse, stamp mill and an amazing house built by William Bourn, original owner of the mine. Bourn also built Filoli, a wonderful historic estate in San Mateo County, CA with many plants supplied by Felix Gillet of Barren Hill Nursery.

Please Note: It is too expensive to ship figs individually right now, but will ship them when ordered with other barefoot trees.
