Prunus salicina ‘Santa Rosa’- Japanese Plum – 7-Gallon
Created by famed California horticulturist Luther Burbank at his plant-breeding research center in Santa Rosa. Not all Japanese plums selected in California do well on the east coast – ‘Santa Rosa’ is one of the better performers. Red-skinned with a purple bloom and amber flesh flushed with red, the ‘Santa Rosa’ is plump plum perfection: sweet with a bit of tartness in the skin, with good texture and lots of juice. Self-fertile and a good pollenizer for other Japanese plums.
