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 Pineapple is the quintessential quince. Bred by Luther Burbank in 1899, its perfumed aroma has a strong, sweet, pineapple fragrance. Old timers would put quince in their closets and drawers to freshen up their clothing. This productive plant, susceptible to fireblight, as are all quince, produces fruit in September and October. Very sturdy, drought tolerant plant. quince can be used as dwarfing rootstock for pear trees. Although edible when raw it is most often cooked and sweetened or added to apple sauce. There are many savory recipes for quince. Dulce de Membrillo is a traditional Spanish dessert usually paired with Manchego Cheese. The trees are slow growing and are between 1/4" caliper and 3/8" caliper

The grandmother trees are cared for by Cy Rollins and Sourdough, the donkey, in Goodyears Bar near the shore of the North Fork of the Yuba River, Sierra County. The Rollins family stewards many of our favorite trees still surviving from the Gold Rush era. Goodyears Bar was one of the original gold strikes on the N. Yuba and is called "Bar" not because of the proclivity of drinking miners, but for a then prominent sand bar in the river, now long gone. Goodyears Bar contains many heirloom gems which we are still discovering.
