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

This small to medium sized fig is light purple and packs dense, sweet, strawberry jam flesh with crunchy seeds. The mildly vigorous tree consistently produces every year. It's first crop ripens in July and the second in September. Although, we haven't positively identified this variety we've seen it advertised as 'Japanese Figs' but haven't figured out why! It sure is a gem! Slow grower, dwarfish. smaller plant

The grandmother tree grows in beautiful Penn Valley just down the road from the famous Bridgeport Covered Bridge. The Covered Bridge measures 230' long which makes it one of the longest single span wooden bridges left in America. It was built in 1862 and was part of the Virginia Turnpike Company Toll Road which made crossing the sometimes torrential river accessible for those servicing the mines and miners in the area.

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