Item Information

Methley" plum has a mild, distinctive, sweet flavor especially good for fresh eating and canning. It's a medium-size, juicy reddish-purple plum that grows sweet and mild in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 to 9. Unlike many Japanese cultivars, "Methley" is self-fruitful. Japanese plums fare better in warm climates than their European counterparts.

  • Japanese plum trees produce the largest and juiciest plums of any type
  • They do best in full sun
  • This attractive tree is heavy bearing and vigorous
  • Plums grow in many soil types but do best in fertile, well-drained soil
  • "Methley" also bares volumes of sweetly fragrant white flowers bloom in early spring
  • Plum leaves are simple, oval to oblong and come to a point at the end
  • The leaf margins are scalloped
  • When it flowers in the early spring, a plum tree will be covered in blossoms, and in a good year approximately half of the flowers will be pollinated and become plums
  • Flowering starts eighty days of warmer weather after winter
  • The shoots have a terminal bud and the side buds solitary (not clustered), the flowers being grouped 1-5 together on short stems
  • A plum is a stone fruit tree in the genus Prunus
  • The fruit has a groove running down one side, and a smooth stone
  • The seed adheres to the flesh on this plum
  • Careful, early training, annual pruning and shaping are required to insure healthy and productive trees
  • Prune to avoid formation of V-crotches
  • Once mature, trees will require little pruning
