Santa Rosa Plums

We now have Santa Rosa plums at the fruit stand.  Santa Rosa plums are fragrant and sweet with a bit of tartness that gives them a distinct flavor.  They're yellow inside with dark red to purple skin.  We have a lot of very ripe Santa Rosas that are good for making flavorful jam as well as for just eating fresh.

Beauty plums have are also at the fruit stand.  Beauty plums are an old variety of plum that used to be packed and sent to the fruit shed in Loomis a lot of years ago.  Now just a few Beauty trees are left in the orchard.

Some of the Frontier plums have been picked, too.  Frontier plums are sweet and red inside with a red to purple skin.
