Enjoy the show while you can; by late July or early August, those blossoms will give way to lovely Plums, ripe for the taking. Santa Rosa Japanese Plums are beautiful to behold, with red-hued, purple skin concealing a layer of red blush, then sweet, yellow flesh surrounding the center clingstone pit.

These beautiful Plums are also perfect for canning, freezing, cooking, drying, so you can easily preserve some of your bounty for enjoying later on in the year or sharing with others as gifts. Santa Rosa’s firm flesh has amazing flavor! It is sweet with a slightly tangy edge, perfect for a wide variety of uses.

Faster growing and vigorous, these trees are amazingly heat resistant and do great up to USDA growing zones 9, while being cold hardy down to zone 5! A great size for both a front yard accent tree and for easy use in the orchard!
#ProPlantTips For CareAll fruit trees do their best in full sun, at least 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sunlight. This gives you the highest amount of blooms and therefore the most fruit and the best tasting Plums possible.
Needing ample access to moisture, especially during fruit formation, Plums prefer well-drained soils. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Santa Rosa Plum Tree is a relatively hardy tree, adaptable to a variety of soils and heat tolerant. It’s even self-fruitful, so you don’t need to have more than one to enjoy a healthy harvest. Santa Rosa only requires about 300-500 chill hours a year to fruit.
However, you will get more fruit production when planted with other Japanese varieties as pollinator partners. Try Methley or Burgundy to amplify your harvest.
Santa Rosa is an old favorite among Plum lovers and still one of the most often grown. A pretty tree, especially during the spring and late summer growing seasons, Santa Rosa a great investment in something that is both useful and beautiful. Order yours today!
Plum Tree Frequently Asked QuestionsHow long does it take for Santa Rosa Plum Trees to bear fruit?Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you’ll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees!
