The Q&A Archives: Santa rosa plum

Question: Are santa rosa plum trees self pollinating and can 1 type fruit tree( apple) polinate another type fruit(plum)

Answer: Santa Rosa plum is considered self fertile, or at least partially self fertile. However, even self fertile plums will develop heavier crops if there is a second plum tree in the yard. Trees need a companion from the same family to provide pollination. Plums are from the Prunus family; Apples are from the Malus family. Plums need plums and apples need apples - however a crabapple tree is from the Malus family and will help pollinate an apple tree. Hope this information clarifies things for you.
