Towards A Climate Resilient Food Economy:

We have passionately searched the Sierra Nevada and Western States to re-discover the living library of plants still scattered across Northern California, those trees and plants left over from the 1800’s and early 1900’s Gold Rush era.   These are the grandmother trees that have become climate resilient with no human attention for the last 100 years. They give the best fruit and nuts in conditions that most fruit and nut trees can not endure with large annual temperature variations. These  grandmother trees have learned to thrive under the most harsh conditions. We want to make them available to growers, gardeners and communities throughout the West Coast.

We have personally found these trees and have taken cuttings directly from the 100+ year old grandmother trees that still cling to life in ghostly, historic orchards. We offer very rare and exclusive plants – some may have only just been rediscovered.

95% of plants available during the 1800s are no longer available today.  We are saving what is left before they die.

Product Details

VERY RARE FUNDRAISER PLANT. There are only a few 6"- 1' tall plants in 1 gallon pots-2-3 years old

The tired, old mother tree managed to produce about 4 fruit in 2020 and they were amazing! They are very sweet with very little to no astringency -pure sweetness. The skin is a dark Pink to light red and the fruit inside are also a light pink to a dark red. We do not know how they will behave or produce, but we are very excited about this pomegranate!

The Mother Tree is on an old homestead in Auburn. We have only a few of these rare pomegranate plants because the old, grandmother, pomegranate tree does not throw out much wood to propagate from. We have only a couple plants, but will grow them out and multiply them over the next few years, thus increasing their availability in the future. These plants are expensive because they are rare, and we only have a few. As a fundraiser plant, sales will allow us to give them the extra care they need to get established and big enough to propagate from. These potted plants are small, no taller than 1'.

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.
