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.
