Methley Plum Tree Information
The Methley Plum tree does best in loamy, well-drained soil and full sun. The tree is exceptionally disease resistant, heat tolerant and also often serves as a pollinator for other Japanese plum trees.
The Methley Plum 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 full maturity. Grow the Methley Japanese plum across the United States in USDA zones 5-9. It is very cold hardy!
One of the most rewarding fruit trees as it can produce fruit as a young tree in the first 1-2 years of planting. Fertilize in the early spring growing season to encourage plums with a slow release fertilizer.
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. No plums on your tree? We can help with that.
