IMPORTANT NOTE – PLEASE READ

Our Trees & Berries are NOT Organic

Dear Friends, although our Veggie, Herb & Edible Flower Seedings ARE Certified Organic, our Fruit Trees and Berry Bushes, for the most part, ARE NOT. Because our Nursery is based at our home in the heart of Los Angeles (on a 50' x 100' lot!!), we simply do not have the room to grow our own trees and berries. Our “Growing Grounds” (the driveway, garage, backyard, dining room, guest bedroom and patio) are bursting at the seams with more than 300 varieties of Veggies, Flowers and Herbs throughout the year, and there's no more expansion possible.

So we buy from local, highly reputable Southern California growers, and therefore, most of what we carry is “Conventionally Grown.” As a Certified Organic Nursery, we are allowed to purchase and sell Conventionally Grown trees so long as we label them as such. And truly, this has not stopped our customers from buying trees like crazy! On occasion, we do have some Organic inventory, but it's rare; we would love to offer more...we'll see what the future holds!

Listed below is just a sampling of the Fruit Trees and Berry Bushes we carry; of course, not everything will be available year-round, but we do keep a pretty good inventory. Because we understand that most city-dwellers don't have huge amounts of space for their backyard orchard, we mostly carry “Self-Fruitful” varieties, and those grown on Semi-Dwarf root stock like the “Little Cado” Avocado and all of the Citrus. We're happy to Special Order “Standard” Citrus or search for a variety you don't see listed here. Feel free to contact us to discuss your Tree & Berry needs. Thank you!
