Mariposa Plum is a variety of Japanese blood plum that produces a large heart-shaped fruit. The fruit has a dark red color with white spotting and deep red, juicy sweet flesh. The plums mature during mid-season, typically from late January to early February. For best results, cross-pollinate with other Japanese plum varieties such as Narrabeen, Satsuma, and Santa Rosa. Mariposa is great for fresh fruit, juice, jam, and stewing. It's also suitable for small to medium-sized 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.
