Pellier Park is all that remains of the City Gardens Nursery, established by Louis Pellier in 1850. Here with, his brothers, Pierre and Jean, Louis introduced "la petite D'Agen," the French Prune, during the winter of 1856-1857. I was this variety that became the mainstay of the California prune industry - the backbone of San Jose's economy for more than 70 years.
