Methley Japanese Plum
Prunus salicina 'Methley'
Methley is one of the few Japanese plums that is self-fruitful. It produces medium to large, reddish-purple fruit of fine quality that are good for fresh eating or jelly. It is an early bloomer and is a good pollinator for Shiro, Santa Rosa and other early blooming Japanese plums. It ripens just ahead of Shiro.
Methley has been around for years and is a regular producer in the Eastern US. It was one of Grandma's favorites.
