Prunus salicina 'Santa Rosa'

- » One of Grandpa's Favorites!
Grandpa's Choice(TM) Santa Rosa Plum is an old-time proven favorite. Large, round red fleshed fruit and very sweet and juicy. Very high quality fruit suitable for eating or canning. The tree is fast growing and vigorous. Somewhat self-fruitful, but should be planted with other japanese plums for pollination. It may be a somewhat shy bearer under eastern conditions, but bears prolifically in the west. Ripens mid-season after Shiro and before Stanley.
Developed and introduced in 1906 by the famous plant breeder Luther Burbank in Santa Rosa, CA.
