4 in stock

One of the legendary Luther Burbank's best plum contributions. It was named after his hometown of Santa Rosa, California and introduced in 1906. Very large, round, reddish purple fruit is covered with light dots. Fragrant, deep maroon, fine-textured flesh makes sweet, flavourful, fresh eating. It has long been classed as one of the highest quality plums for processing, canning, etc. Vigorous, upright growing tree is an excellent pollenizer for other Japanese plums and pluots.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
