About the Fruit
This complex hybrid plum has roots in Japan, but was ultimately bred in 1906 by Luther Burbank, a California horticulturist known for developing over 800 varieties of plants!
While we used to get our Santa Rosas from Flora Bella (RIP our favorite trees!), and then we procured a little from Andy’s Orchard last year, we were able to get a good amount this year from Ken’s Top Notch who grows a ton of wonderful stone fruit varieties! With hardly any shelf life, we immediately cook them in jam pans with flowering thyme because they’re both vibrant at the same point in time—so why not have a conversation.
“Holy stone fruit! This is the jam." - Quote from the old copywriting
*Santa Rosa plums, *cane sugar, *Sorrento lemon juice, *flowering thyme
