Methley Plum is a semi-dwarf deciduous tree primarily grown for its fruit but has an attractive irregular spreading form.  The showy display of fragrant white spring flowers attract butterflies and give way to a heavy bearing of rich purple-red summer fruits.  These sweet and mild plums have a distinctive flavor good fresh or jellied.  Grows best in full sun and rich, moist well-drained soils.  Methley is a self pollinator that produces heavy and early, but sets fruit better with another cultivar.  Improved disease and heat resistance, but due to early spring flowering buds may be susceptible to frost damage.
