Deciduous Trees & Plants at Sarvodaya Farms

Whats a Deciduous Tree?

Deciduous plants are plants that drop their leave and go dormant in winter.
These plants require some cold in the winter to thrive and produce fruit.

To the untrained eye, a deciduous plant can appear "dead" during winter, but they are just SLEEPING! While deciduous plants sleep is the best time to plant and prune them.


What should I know before ordering?

#1 Deciduous plants are best planted while dormant in Winter. Planting in Spring is also okay, but do not plant in the high temperatures of mid-summer.

#2 Plant deciduous plants in winter-shady locations in your garden.   As the sun drops lower during winter, buildings or trees cast their shadows northward. These winter-shady locations are perfect for deciduous plants, as they don't need sunlight during the winter.

Bareroot Blackberry, Prime Ark Freedom - PREORDER

$27.50

Our most popular plant at Sarvodaya Farms. Prime-Ark Freedom blackberry is unreal! The plant is completely thornless, and has an upright growth habit. The fruit is the really crazy part though: berries can literally be 4 inches long and 2 inches fat. The flavor is rich, juicy, and seeds are relatively small.  Just unbelievable.

The variety was created through conventional breeding and has not been genetically engineered.

This blackberry variety is disease resistant and drought tolerant.  In Southern California, expect first harvest as soon as temperatures are regularly in the 80s.  Fruit will continue coming all summer in successive waves, except when temperatures are regularly above 95 degrees.

The Prime-Ark Freedom blackberry does best in full sun and loamy, well-drained soil. It is self-pollinating and was originally part of the University of Arkansas’s primocane breeding program and is the first primocane-fruiting thornless blackberry ever. This means more fruit faster as it fruits on new growth unlike most other blackberries. This extends the fruit harvest time too as new canes will produce early season berries, while the older canes will produce later season berries.


Special Features:
• Large, sweet fruit
• Thornless
• Self-fertile
• Disease resistant

Bareroot Blueberry Trio (3 plants) for California

$44.00

Our bareroot blueberry trio is a mix of three varieties that are well adapted for growth in California. These Southern Highbush varieties require very few chill hours, have upright bushy growth, and will fruit well in warmer climates. 

Blueberries will fruit better with multiple varieties available for cross-pollination and you will get an extended harvest due, hence this trio. The three varieties included in our trio are: Biloxi, O'Neal, and Misty.  See below for variety descriptions.

We highly recommend growing blueberries in 15 gallon GrowBags with an acidic organic fertilizer.

Pawpaw is the long-forgotten cousin of the Cherimoya.  Native to the East coast, Pawpaw is an indigenous North American fruit a sweet banana-mango-passionfruit custard interior, and one of our favorite fruits. Pawpaw was long ignored by white colonizers who considered it unfit to eat. Indigenous communities are now reviving this fruit, and reintroducing it to America.

Unlike most other fruit trees, Pawpaw is an understory tree and prefers to grow for several years in the shade of other trees. Once established, Pawpaw prefers more sunlight to fruit. Our variety seedlings are from a self-fertile tree, and are expected to be self-fertile.  Most pawpaws are not self-fertile and require a 2nd tree for pollination.  Seedlings come from our own mother tree, named the Diamond Bar Banana.

We hope to offer grafted varieties soon.

#4 Amend the Soil

Most deciduous plants will prefer highly fertile soil, and soil in most home gardens has been damaged from construction and years of dehydration and sun exposure. Improve soil quality by amending it with organic matter such as compost. Add a 3 inch thick layer of compost in a 5 foot diameter around the trunk of trees, or a 2 foot diameter around the base of smaller plants.

#5 Mulch

Apply a 3 inch thick layer of wood chip mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Keep the mulch away from the plant's stem to prevent rot.

#6 Watering

Water newly planted subtropical plants deeply to establish their roots. Water regularly to maintain soil moisture.
