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

An ancient and sacred Mediterranean Perennial Herb Tree mentioned in the Bible. The flowers are beautiful and the leaves and berries are an edible herb with a very intense aroma which could be considered similar to rosemary, sage or juniper but different. It is delicious sweet and spicy. It is often cooked with meat such as Rabbit or Deer. The berries are very mild and a traditional alcoholic drink, Mitro, is made from them in Sardinia and Corsica. The berry picture here has slightly immature berries, they get larger and darker in color.

This beautiful 100+ year old tree is found on an old ranch near a pomegranate, olive, pears and figs. It's orange knobby trunk grows up about 7' tall then showers down branches and flowers, creating a fun hideout inside about 8' wide. This tree can be pruned however you like but it tends to grow in a weeping willow effect with the branches. You can prune it low or even as a 15 foot tall tree with weeping branches. We've seen it also pruned as a hedge. We love this plant.

Please Note: We do not ship potted plants individually. It is too expensive, but we will ship them when ordered with other barefoot trees. By themselves, they are only available for pick up in N. San Juan.
