Looking for a delicious plum tree that looks great in your landscape all year long and is fresh eating? Look no further than the Methley Plum cultivar!
The Methley Plum tree produces sweet, purple-red fleshed fruit that ripen in the summer and are of medium size. This variety blooms beautiful, fragrant white flowers beginning in spring. It is self-pollinating, but planting two or more will result in a better crop from cross pollination. Only around 250 chill hours are required for the plum tree to set fruit.
This early blooming european plum produces heavy annual crops of juicy sweet red fruit.
The Methley Plum tree does best in loamy, well-drained soil and full sunlight. The tree is exceptionally disease resistant, heat tolerant and also often serves as a pollinator for other Japanese plum trees. The Methley Plum prefers full sun and has a very fast growth rate.
The semi dwarf tree can grow up to 12-15 inches per year. In addition, it can grow up to 15-20 feet tall at maturity. One of the most rewarding fruit trees as it can bear fruit as a young tree in the first 1-2 years of planting. Fertilize in the early spring growing season to encourage plums.
Overall, a very easy to grow plum tree. We ship these trees rooted in soil in containers, they are not shipped bare root. This is to ensure the safety of the trees.
