Mariposa Plum is a Japanese blood plum with large heart-shaped, dark red fruit with white spotting and deep red, juicy sweet flesh. The plums reach maturity mid-season: late January to early February. Cross-pollinate with other Japanese plums such as Narrabeen, Satsuma and Santa Rosa. Mariposa is ideal for fresh fruit, juice, jam and stewing. Suitable for small to medium gardens.

Soil: Cultivate well-drained soil thoroughly before planting. Don't dig into clay - create a mound of topsoil. Water often until well established. Requires a deep soaking when dry. Mulch is beneficial.
Conditions: Full sun. Frost and coastal tolerant.
