Most Popular - Most Demanded Plum Tree for the Home Orchard!

Have world famous, sweet Santa Rosa plums just outside your door! The most popular plum tree for commercial use and home growing.

These trees produce an abundant harvest of sweetly flavored, dark purple fruit each year. Adaptable to most soil types and are self-fertile... cross pollination is not necessary, but will increase fruit production when a second plum tree is planted nearby.

The Santa Rosa tree takes up very little space, yet produces bushels of fruit.

Santa Rosa plums appear in mid-June and ripen in mid-August. Delicious when eaten fresh... perfect for drying and baking as well.

Your tree has been continuously pruned to encourage more branching. More branching means more fruit, earlier production and a healthier tree. This process takes us up to a year longer than our competitors, but you'll find that it makes a huge difference.

Prior to shipping, your trees receive a final pruning at no additional cost.

The plums that you purchase in the supermarket are sprayed with insecticides and fungicides that are difficult to wash off completely. This is especially true for plums imported from Central and South America.

But now, you can easily grow your own Santa Rosa plums without chemicals for tastier, healthier and fresher fruit.

I purchased this tree along with a pollinator plum tree last fall and they came with a few branches & leaves... went dormant for the winter... now it's spring and they are both doing quite well. May not see any fruit for a year or 2 though so I can't review on the plums themselves.

Looking good
I've had my tree for about a month. It arrived about 5 ft. tall. Very well packaged. I planted it well, following the planting recommendations. I now have leaves sprouting. Everything's looking good.

I just love the Santa Rosa Plum Tree that I bought from you.
The Santa Rosa Plum Tree that I purchased from you is beautiful. Although it was pretty large from the beginning, it has continued to grow and getup out new leaves. It's a very beautiful, hardy tree so far. I look forward to slowly increase the number of trees in my orchard, and I plan to get them all from you because you just can't improve on the service you give your customers. Thanks!

Santa Rosa Plum
Does well but is confused as our weather has been on again off again cold then hot then cold. Not usual for Mississippi. Growth is somewhat stunted due to weather but looks healthy and will eventually grow to full potential I assume. Good strong stock and in good condition when delivered. I really like Fast Growing Trees as a general rule healthy well tended stock but sometimes gets beat up in shipping even though it is always well packed shippers seem to throw the package around since it is smaller.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Santa Rosa Plum Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Santa Rosa Plum Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Santa Rosa Plum Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Santa Rosa Plum Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Is the Santa Rosa plum self-pollinating?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2014
Best Answer: There is a bit of ambiguity about this. The Santa Rosa Plum is self-pollinating and will often bear well with no other plums the gardener knows about being in the area. However, if it doesn't bear well, you can always plant another plum (Methley is often recommended) for cross fertilization.

Why did my Santa Rosa plum tree suddenly die? This is only the 3rd summer of having it.
Yvonne O on Aug 5, 2014
Best Answer: The best way to determine what happened to your Santa Rosa Plum is to contact your Extension Agent. They are in the best position to determine what caused the death of your tree because they know local conditions and problems.

Are the fruits attractive to the squirrels ?
Waleed A on Nov 13, 2014
Best Answer: Unfortunately, squirrels love these plums just as much as people do! If you don't have a dog that likes to chase squirrels, you might need to use netting to protect the fruit at harvest time.

I had two plum trees. worms got in both trees & one died how can this be prevented? I would like to get one more to pollinate the one I still have?
Peggy M on Apr 23, 2015
Best Answer: Depending on what type of worms they are would determine what would be the best method of treatment. You could call your local Agricultural department for assistance.

Is it necessary to cut the growth from the bottom of my plum tree, does it have any adverse effect on the growth of the tree or fruit?
Jackie on Sep 9, 2014
Best Answer: I think you are referring to suckers growing out of the bottom of the trunk below the graft line, and these should be cut back as soon as you see them. They will divert energy from your fruit formation, and can eventually take over the tree if left alone.

How many hours of chill (<45 degrees) does this tree need each year? Zone 10 has a pretty vast variance in chill hours. I'm in West LA, and we probably only get about 35 hrs/yr below 45 degrees.
Michael T on Jun 12, 2016
Best Answer: Not sure. I live in SW Michigan, and Midwest winters are pretty cold!

I bought one of these plum trees and planted it 5 days ago according to the planting instructions. All the leaves are progressively tuning brown and falling off. There is only about 2 new buds on the whole tree. Does this sound normal? Any suggestions?
Cole H on Jun 13, 2016
Best Answer: Yes it is normal. It could be that it is experiencing "ship shock". Give it a little while and it should bounce back.

Does this require a cross-pollinator?
Karen on Sep 4, 2015

How often should I water a new dwarf Santa Rosa Plum tree?
eddyg on Sep 3, 2015
Best Answer: Your plum tree will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.
