A cultivar of Japanese plum, Methley is a handsome tree that is small, upright, and spreading. It produces heavy, annual crops of juicy, sweet, red-purple fruit that ripens from late May to early July, depending on location. The fruit is juicy, sweet and mild with a distinctive flavor—good for fresh eating or jelly. The Methley plum also serves as a good pollinator for other early bearing Japanese varieties.

  • Produces medium to large clingstone fruit with purple-red skin and juicy red flesh with a sweet, mild flavor
  • Ripens from late May to mid-July
  • Blooms in early spring, profuse with clusters of sweetly fragrant, delicate white flowers
  • Is self-fertile, but planting two trees is recommended for a better crop
  • Will be delivered at a height of 3'–4' for bare-root; a height of 1'-3' for 4" pot; 1 3/4' - 3 1/2' for a 1-gallon pot
