A wide-spreading canopy that doubles as a great shade tree, 'Methley' is a small Japanese plum tree that produces a heavy crop of medium-sized purple fruits. The flesh is red, sweet, and very juicy to use in many ways. Fruit ripens over a long season and is ready to harvest throughout the whole summer. Eat raw or use it to make jelly.
