Orchard 11 was the location of the last battle between the Unchained Memory of Comet Tail and Wasabi Pea's Wild 15, roughly 200 years before the events of the novel. The newly resurrected Comet Tail, having stolen the body of Borealis, followed Wasabi Pea's mercenary band here in an attempt to recover the Phases of the Moon taken from his factory. Wasabi Pea, Comet Tail, and the entire mercenary company perished. The only survivors of the battle were Chamberlain and Sleetsweet.

The Orchard was originally founded during the Second Era to grow beets. At the time of the battle, it had become a radicore nest.
