Prunus salicina 'Methley'

Juicy, sweet, distinctive flavor. Consistant bearer. Ripens late May. Good companion for Santa Rosa Plum. This tree looks great year-round. In summer, this variety yields sweet, purple-red plums; in spring, it offers white, fragrant flowers; and in fall and winter, the tree offers structural interest and a great place to hang holiday lights. A heavy bearer, Methley grows clusters of plums all throughout the tree. Disease-resistant to fungal diseases like rust. A superb pollinator for other Japanese plum trees. Heat-tolerant. Clingstone. Originates in South Africa, introduced to America in 1922. Ripens in mid July. Self-pollinating. *Deer May Browse*
