Methley Plum Tree


The Methley plum tree is a Japanese plum variety which is one of the favored and bears heavy crops consistently. In fact, these trees produce delicious purplish-red plums with radiant white flowers in the early spring. Not only is the fruit medium – large with delicious juicy, sweet, clingstone flesh, but it is also perfect for canning as well as eating off the tree.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
