MULBERRY SEEDLING 

Morus alba tatarica                      

$6.00 

A great economical plant for hedgerows, livestock, and wildlife plantings. Because these are not grafted, seedlings will either be female or male. Females will produce smaller variable fruit than grafted varieties that can be white, red, or black. Males are non-fruiting. Can be grown as a tree or shrub. Easy to prune. Planting at least 3 is recommended to increase your chance of having a female tree. 

PACIFIC CRAB APPLE

Malus fusca                                   

$20.00

 

Our only native apple. This is a great native plant for wildlife and hedge plantings. Tolerant of shade and wet soils, easy to grow as a shrub or tree. Beautiful white blossoms in spring. Bountiful tiny apples that persist on the tree in fall.  You can also use this as a rootstock for cultivated apple varieties!

DESERT KING FIG

Ficus carica

$30.00

Our most reliable fig for the Pacific Northwest. Produces large yellow-green figs with juicy pink flesh. Ripens mid-summer. Will produce one crop each year from the previous season’s growth, so don't prune more than half of that growth when pruning. One of the easiest fruits to grow, plus the deer don’t like them!
