I doubt it. I'm on the cold side of Z6 and Santa Rosa often suffers cambium
damage here. I believe it may have more to do with spring fluctuations than
winter cold, however. I've seen the worst damage in the last 3 years when
winters have been pretty mild. Shiro and Methely are much tougher in my
nursery and the orchards I manage and bear more consistantly by far.
Unfortunately to most they don't taste as good. Right now I rate Fortune as
the most promising really tastey Jap plum here. Haven't had any cambium
damage on trees right next to damaged Santa Rosas and killed Elephant
