The Santa Rosa plum was bred by famed horticulturist Luther Burbank in 1906 and named after his research center in Santa Rosa. These plums have a sweet juicy flesh complemented
by a slightly tart skin which make them perfect for making jam. Although considered the benchmark for plums
they are not grown commercially anymore because the fruit is very soft when ripe
and needs special handling. Since we
grow these in our orchard this is not a problem, in fact we are able to pick
them at their maximum flavor before making them into jams and syrups. Santa Rosa plums growing in our orchard.
