Why get a Santa Rosa Plum Tree?
• Matures at 20 feet tall, so it grows in tight spaces and small lots.
• Low branches are the perfect picking height
• Heavy producing variety that gives you large, consistent harvests.
• Large fruit is sweet, firm and juicy!
Where does the Santa Rosa plum grow best?
These trees thrive in full sun and well-drained soil in growing zones 5-10. Your tree will establish itself and quickly produce plenty of fruit. Be sure to give your tree additional water during extended droughts, and protect your tree from late-spring frosts.
Is it easy to grow Santa Rosa Plums organically?
The only way to ensure that your fruit is chemical-free is by growing your own. Many plums bought at grocery stores have been exposed to harmful chemicals, pesticides, and fungicides. The Santa Rosa Plum is one of the best varieties for organic growing because it is naturally disease and pest-resistant. Not only is this fruit chemical-free, but it is sweeter than grocery store fruit, too.
How much fruit will I get?
Your trees have been specially pruned to encourage heavy branching- more branches means more fruit! Your Santa Rosa Plum Tree is relatively easy to grow and takes up very little space, yet it produces bushels of fruit for you and your family to enjoy. One mature tree can produce up to 100 pounds of free fruit a year!
What do Santa Rosa plums taste like?
Santa Rosas are one of the largest plum varieties. They have deep red-to-purple skin and fragrant, juicy yellow flesh with delicious flavor. They taste fantastic when picked and eaten right off the tree, but are also preferred for jams, jellies and preserves. They are delicious when used in dried fruit arrangements as well. Once ripened, they can be stored in the refrigerator. They also freeze well- just put them in a bag and they can be kept for months.
Pollination & fruiting season
Santa Rosa Plum Trees feature fragrant white flowers in May, followed by juicy plums ready for harvesting in late July or early August. These trees are self-pollinating, but will produce more fruit if they are pollinated with another suitable plum tree. Planting in pairs will multiply your plum production!
Best time to plant
Plant your plum trees as early as possible, so that your trees have plenty of time to get conditioned to your environment. This also aids in increasing your fruit production. Just plant any time of year when your ground isn't frozen.
