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 fruit is firm and of good quality. One of the most frequently planted Japanese plums. It is a self pollinating tree and thus can be planted in locations where pollination is not needed.

Will produce fruit in 3 to 5 years. Bloom period around late May and harvest period is in late July.

  
 Maintenance and Tips: Minimize

Propagation methods are done from semi-hardwood cuttings, seed, or direct sow after last frost. To do seed collecting, allow unblemished fruit to ripen, clean and dry seeds. Properly cleaned, seed can be successfully stored.

 Uses Minimize

Excellent for home drying along with its fresh taste when it ripens. Good - quality Santa Rosa plums will be fairly firm to slightly soft with smooth skin. Also great for fresh eating, cooking, and canning. They freeze remarkably well, just throw them into a ziplock bag and they can be kept for months! Good for making ice cream, sorbet or compote.

Although plums are native to Asia, Europe, and America, most U.S. production is in the Japanese varities wich are red and yellow.
