Plum Good

Right on time with the summer solstice, our slurpy-tangy Santa Rosa plums tell you that summer has truly arrived on the farm. The Santa Rosa, as you might have guessed from the name, is one of the true stars bred by famed California horticulturist Luther Burbank at his plant-breeding research center in Santa Rosa.

Red-skinned with a purple bloom and amber flesh flushed with red, the Santa Rosa is plump plum perfection: sweet with a bit of tartness in the skin, with good texture and lots of juice. These are one of our favorite and most reliable plums of summer - we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Coming up soon will be our first nectarine of the season, the silky-sweet white beauty Jade. With smooth, fuzzless skin that's splashed magenta over white, Jade is a luscious and fragrant white nectarine that's dripping with sweetness. Slurp!
