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

The origin of this variety is unknown, but we do know that Felix introduced it to the US in 1880. To quote Gillet: “Fruit medium large, round, skin dark red. Flesh purplish red, tender, juicy, delicate flavor.”

W.W Smith of Vacaville, one of the most famous cherry growers in 19th century California said: “I must speak of the Guigne Marbree which I obtained from Mr. Gillet, of Nevada City. I find it an immense bearer, ripening with the Early Purple Guigne, which is, with me, a shy bearer but a good shipping cherry. The Guigne Marbree is lighter colored than the other.” Ripens from late May through early July depending on location. Apparently self fertile, it will likely bear a larger crop with a pollenizer.

The amazing, hardy grandmother tree is growing in Lake City, Nevada County, originally Painesville near the South Yuba River. It is east of North Columbia at 3,390’ elevation. Settled in 1853 as a result of the hydraulic mining at Malakoff Diggins. At its peak more than 300 people lived in town. In 1877, it was included on the route of the world's first long-distance telephone line. Today the population is under 20.
