SITE OF CITY GARDENS – NURSERY OF LOUIS PELLIER


Pellier, native of Saint-Hippolyte, France and founder of California’s prune industry, came to California in 1849. In October 1850 he established a nursery called City Gardens. Here, aided by his brothers Pierre and Jean, who came over from France at a later date, he introduced the French prune-la petite prune d’Agen-into California during the winter of 1856-57.
