PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION

When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!

There are several factors why we must ship immediately:

  • We can only ship bare root items when they are dormant. With us being located in CA, trees/plants can come out of dormancy well before the rest of the nation is ready to plant.
  • We receive our bare root items in successive deliveries. We need to move them out quickly, as our space is limited.
  • It is very challenging, if not impossible, to keep track of who gets what when dealing with ten's of thousands of trees/plants and 200 varieties over 3 months, hence we must adhere to our policy.

ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS

When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.

While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.

AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from their plastic bag, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, covering their roots with sand, dirt, sawdust or wood chips (do not use cedar that is toxic to the trees) and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.


Standard on Northern California Black Walnut Seedling rootstock.

  • Zones: 4-8
  • Chill hours: 900
  • Harvest: October 5 - October 20
  • Looks: Medium-sized vivid red kernels.
  • Personality: Highly desired in niche and farmers’ markets.
  • Facts of note: Laterally fruitful and harvests late with moderate to heavy yield. Leafing of the Livermore variety occurs in mid-April. This variety is a cross of "Howard" and Juglans regia 'Purpurea' developed in 1991. Livermore is noted as a precocious bearer and will often bear fruit in its fourth year.
  • Pollination: Self-pollinated. For increased yields plant Livermore with Franquette.
  • European walnuts are the standard of eating walnuts. Good for shade, highly productive. Requires deep watering and well–drained soil. Plant two varieties for best production. Susceptible to blight and root diseases. Can be tricky to grow and are subject to a more limited bareroot guarantee limited to 50% of the purchase price (see page 37 for more details). Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 5th year.

    Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Pecan, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
