Plum Tree - Santa Rosa

Heat Tolerant Tree

The Santa Rosa Plum tree produces plums that have a delicious flavor. The fruit is large, attractive, dark reddish purple color with red flesh.

The deep ruby red berry-tart skin is so thin, it will pop when punctured!

The fruit ripens in mid August and is firm and of good quality. It is one of the most frequently planted Japanese plums. After one taste of this rich, tangy plum you will want to experience this plum time and again!

It is a self-pollinating tree and thus can be planted in locations where pollination is not needed, but cross pollination is not necessary, but will increase fruit production when a second plum tree is planted nearby.

Fruit buds are susceptible to winter injury in northern climates. The tree is vigorous, easy-to-grow and heat-tolerant.

Santa Rosa plums are great for fresh eating and when used in desserts such as cakes, pies, and ice creams.

*Thin Ruby Red Skin

*Self Pollinating

*Vigorous and Heat Tolerant

santa rosa plum Review by Gwen
To get good fruit with this tree, you need another variety to pollinate. Otherwise the fruit will be tiny. Same with your apricot! (below)
santa rosa plum Review by jimtdi
This is a wonderful plum on a cool summer night pick a ripe s r plum nothing better been eating these plums since on my granfathers home the the older the tree the better the flavor
good Review by Betsy
My Santa Rosa tree is three years old and produced fruit for the first time this summer. A very small amount as well as tiny, but delicious!
Ive yet to prune the tree & a bit intimidated to do so. The tree is a standard. I have planted it next to an apricot tree which has not produced any fruit.
