    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    These trees are originally grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

    Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

    If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing. 

    These will be the easiest trees you have every planted!  Simply dig your hole, place the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole.  That’s it!

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.

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.

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.

I actually purchased these earlier in the spring but they didnt make it and im hoping this time they will survive.
Sheralyn K on Sep 24, 2015
I picked this fruit because it grows in zones 5-10. One of my friends from South Florida had a Santa Rosa Plum tree that grew well and bore fruit in zone 10. Since I am in zone 9 now I expect this tree will do well and it can cross pollinate my Flavor King Pluot.

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.
How long does it take before the Santa Rosa bares fruit?
Harry W on Apr 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Santa Rosa typically starts bearing fruit three to five years after planting.
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 this a flowering tree?
Patricia S on Nov 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This tree has attractive flowers, but it is grown for the fruit it produces.
I would like to order plums, do they ship any to CA?
betty s on Aug 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Fast Growing Trees ships to the whole continental United States, so yes, they will ship to your California location, provided your selection will grow in your growing zone, and that it is a gprper time for planting.
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.
Can you pot a SANTA ROSA PLUM TREE ?
Marie S on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can pot them or put them in the ground.
can you tell me how big the fruit is in inches? the santa rosa and the superior
Alan E on Dec 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They both are large fruits and will be 1 1/2 to 2 inches.
What is the latest time of year I can plant this in the ground in PA climate?
Michael B on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can plant it as late as about 6 weeks before your first hard freeze.
Does this require a cross-pollinator?
Karen on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe it is self-fertile but probably produces better with a pollinator.
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.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
