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.

Product Details

This vigorous tree produces two crops per year. The first crop is small, in late June-July. The main crop in September-October at 2500' is prolific. The fruit is violet-brown in the sun to greenish violet in the shade. The rich flesh is red, very juicy and of very good quality. This tree has survived many snows, and offers a multi branched, productive, wonderful fruit.

The grandmother tree is vigorously growing and producing on an 1890s homestead at 2500’ on American Hill in Nevada City, about 1 mile from Gillet’s Barren Hill Nursery. Nevada City was a bustling place in the late 1800s, the Queen of the Northern Mines, with much agriculture to feed the miners. We have found many Felix trees in this community, likely due to nearly 100 years of continuous nursery operation. Felix grew many of the trees and vines still thriving in and around Nevada City.

Please Note: We do not ship figs individually. It is too expensive to ship figs individually right now, but will ship them when ordered with other barefoot trees.
