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.

Strawberry, Mara Des Bois

Strawberry, Mara Des Bois

Our favorite strawberry at Sarvodaya Farms. Mara Des Bois is the most flavorful, softest, melt-in-your-mouth strawberry you will ever try.  Strawberries are on the smaller side, but pack a bomb of passionfruit-strawberry flavor that will make you forget all strawberries before it. Amazing fragrance that can be smelled from feet away.  Perfect for container growing as well.

Mara Des Bois fruits all summer when temperatures are below 95 degrees.  Fruiting will stop at temperatures above 95, and resume when temperatures drop below 95.  In Southern California, expect two fruitings: one from spring to mid-summer, and then a smaller fruiting as we approach fall.  Support your plants with a mid-summer feeding of compost.

Blackberry, Prime Ark Freedom

Prime-Ark® Freedom blackberry is the perfect berry!

This blackberry variety is disease resistant and drought tolerant and will begin to ripen in July until first frost. Its is thornless variety with large to x-large fruits that are very sweet, and firm in texture.


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

Golden Currant, 'Ribes aureum'

Golden Currant is a winter-hardy, drought-tolerant, multi-stemmed shrub with clusters of fragrant, edible yellow flowers in Spring, followed by juicy sweet-tart berries in Summer.

Flowers have a spicy-sweet fragrance like clove and vanilla and make a decorative addition to Spring salads. The berries are an excellent native food source by themselves and are also useful in recipes for their wonderful flavor sweetened into jams, jellies, pies, or even currant ice cream. Indigenous Californians value this plant as food.

Golden Currant has been widely cultivated for its ornamental landscape value. It’s trumpet-shaped golden-yellow flowers, unique spicy-sweet fragrance, and petite stature make it a wonderful backyard companion. Even the elliptical berries, dangling in rows from outstretched, arching limbs, are ornamental - ranging from yellow to orange to red to black at maturity.

What’s more, after the berries mature, the maple-like Autumn leaves put out a great show of color, turning slowly yellow to red before they drop. Pruning can keep this shrub to any size you please. A great border shrub, or as a centerpiece. Very low maintenance.

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.

Deciduous Planting Instructions

Section

Your dream subtropical fruits await you! Follow these planting instructions carefully so you have success with your trees and plants! Subtropicals grow easily if you give them the right conditions.

#1 Plant in the right season

Coming soon!

#2 Choose a warm location

Coming soon!

#3 Planting

Coming 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.
