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.
Plant in full sun in water frequently until established. Prune in winter to promote open branching and good airflow for fruiting.
