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.
