Santa Rosa Plum Trees for Sale Online
The Santa Rosa Plum Tree (Prunus salicina ‘Santa Rosa’) is a favorite among many home gardeners and fruit growers. This fruit tree is self-pollinating and can be used as a pollinator tree for other fruiting plums. The Plums this tree produces are known for their sweet, slightly tart taste and deep purple-red color. A fun fact about this fruit tree is that it usually takes fewer years to begin bearing fruit than other plum trees.
Aside from its ability to produce fruit, this tree adds ornamental value to gardens with its showy, pinkish-white blossoms in the spring. Plums are an excellent source of fiber and are high in vitamins A, C, and K. Also, this fruit's dark color makes it high in antioxidants too. You will need to give your tree full sun exposure and in the winter, be sure it will have at least 500 chill hours.
