Methley Plum is a cultivar of a Japanese plum that is small and upright with just enough of a spreading form to make this an absolutely beautiful tree. It produces heavy, annual crops of juicy, sweet, red purple fruit. The fruit is juicy, sweet and mild with a distinctive flavor which is good for fresh eating or jelly.

This vigorous plum tree, considered more productive and attractive than just about any other plum tree, produces an abundant harvest of fruit each year. So much, in fact, that one harvest requires multiple pickings! It's an upright, spreading tree with pretty springtime blossoms and glossy green leaves that make it quite ornamental.

Methley Plum Tree FAQ

How Long Does This Tree Take To Bare Fruit?

This self pollinating plum tree will bare fruit in 2-4 growing seasons.

Where Should I Plant A Methley Plum Tree?

This plum is adaptable to a variety of soils and prefers full sun exposure in grow zones 4-9. Space 15 feet apart to accomodate a 15- 20 foot spread at maturity.

When Should I Prune My Plum Tree?

Pruning can be done in spring to remove interior branches, water sprouts, growing scaffold branches, and dead, damaged, or diseased wood.

Caring for Methley Plum Tree

Plums require minimal pruning which should be done after flowering when the tree is still leafless. In the formative years, pruning can be to remove interior branches, water sprouts, growing scaffold branches, and dead, damaged, or diseased wood. In maturity, vigorous upright shoots are removed as fruiting increasingly occurs on spurs on older wood.
