Methley Plum Tree
Methley Plum Tree
Our Price: $25.00

Methley, a cultivar of Japanese plum, is a handsome tree that is small, upright and spreading. It produces heavy, annual crops of juicy, sweet, red purple fruit that ripens from late May to early July, depending on location. The fruit is juicy, sweet and mild with a distinctive flavor—good for fresh eating or jelly.This is a self-fertile tree, meaning it doesn’t require another tree to produce fruit. But planting two or more is recommended for a better crop. The Methley plum also serves as a good pollinator for other early bearing Japanese varieties. Chill hours 250 grafted on Halford rootstock.

AU Roadside Plum
AU Roadside Plum
Our Price: $25.00

AU-ROADSIDE. is a new plum variety developed by the Alabama
Agricultural Experiment Station, Auburn University, for,
growing in areas where sufficient chilling of 700 hours of temperature
below 45°F occurs. AU-Roadside has proven its ability to
produce high yields of excellent quality fruit where there are certain
fruit and tree disease problems. The new variety is superior to the
Ozark Premier variety in yield, fruit quality, tree vigor, disease
resistance, and tree longevity. Therefore, AU-Roadside is being
released as a direct replacement for the Ozark Premier variety.
AU-Roadside was selected from a cross between Ozark Premier
and Methley varieties. The cross was made in 1965 and the seedling
was tested as Ozark Premier F-2, see figure. It has resistance or
tolerance to black knot, bacterial canker, bacterial fruit spot, and
plum leaf scald, prevalent diseases of plum, tables 1 and 2. Such
resistance is particularly important in the Southeast where prevalence
of these diseases and susceptibility of commercial varieties has
discouraged plum production. Its resistance to bacterial and fungal
diseases came from the Ozark Premier parent, while excellent fruit
quality was inherited from both parents.

Bruce Plum
Bruce Plum
Our Price: $25.00

"Bruce Plum," is a hybrid plum produced by crossing a Japanese plum with a member of another plum group, called European plums. A tree that can be 10 to 15 feet tall at maturity, it blooms in early spring, producing masses of small, bright white flowers. Somewhat earlier to ripen than "Methley," "Bruce" plums are usually ready for picking by the start of June. The fruit is especially large and has distinctly red skin and yellow or orange flesh. The variety is generally not self-fruitful and requires a nearby pollinator such as "Methley" or another Japanese-type cultivar for cross-pollination.
