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 French variety is from the early 1800s. Felix began selling them in 1882. The luscious fruit is medium size, roundish with a long stem. The skin is transparent, pale yellow to translucent, with amber on the sun-exposed cheek. Flesh is whitish–yellow, tender, juicy, pleasant, brisk, sub acid, becoming floral sweet. Good quality. This is a unique variety and a conversation starter. An original variety, previously used to make Maraschino cherries. Ripens in July at 2700'. Large, vigorous and productive tree. Very resistant to bird feeding.

The grandmother tree is a very healthy, hundred plus-year-old, semi-wild, non-pruned beauty, growing at the old St. Charles stage stop in Goodyears Bar, Sierra County, along the banks of the North Fork of the Yuba River at 2700'. Goodyears Bar is the site of one of the original gold strikes on the Yuba River, and it hosted hundreds of miners who drank heartily at the bars. Now, Goodyears Bar is as quiet as can be and still sporting dozens of Felix Gillet's heirloom trees.
