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 beautiful, cherry-red fruit is the best cherry that we have found in Nevada City or Grass Valley. It darkens to a blackish purple when fully ripe. Medium sized with a sweet cherry-berry flavor. Depending on the year, it ripens from early to late July at 2800'. The mother tree has been producing regularly for over 100 years!

This large grandmother tree resided on a small homestead in Grass Valley, CA. Unfortunately the tree died in 2016, likely due to the drought, but we have preserved it for future generations! This is why our work is so important. Grass Valley, sister to Nevada City, was a thriving mining town with numerous, hard-rock mines, including the Empire State Historic Mine. Once the home of Lola Montez, creator of the scandalous Spider Dance. Also, one of our all-time heros, Lyman Gilmore, the real inventor of the airplane.
