The¬†Prunus Salicina¬†‚ÄėSanta Rosa‚Äô - Santa Rosa plum¬†is a Japanese variety plum. During spring time, before bearing fruit, this tree produces small whitish-pink blossoms. Within 3-5 years produces¬†large to medium size with a deep red to purple skin that is thin, delicate and glossy when ripe. The flesh is firm, sweet yet slightly tart, and a yellow-orange shade that deepens into a red-orange once closer to the skin.

This variety is a self-fertile variety, though having other trees to encourage cross-pollination will provide a more bountiful harvest. Fruit becomes ripe and ready to harvest from late July to August. Works well in bakery items as this fruit hold its form well but is also used in jams, canning, cooking and of course eaten fresh.
