Sqirl LA: Santa Rosa Plum Fruit Spread
Viscous, jolly rancher, holy.
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 Windrose who grows a ton of wonderful stone fruit varieties! With hardly any shelf life, we immediately cook them in our 15 qt copper jam pans.
“Holy stone fruit! This is the jam." - Quote from the old copywriting
