wild Plum

(Prunus Americana)

Full Sun. Full size on own roots (not grafted), plant two for pollination. disease resistant

These seedling trees are extremely disease-resistant and set bumper crops of golf-ball sized fruit every two years.  In between years get a smaller crop.  The fruit is red-skinned and yellow fleshed and glows when the sunlight hits it!  It is delicious eaten straight off the tree with a slight astringency that comes through delightfully in wine made from these fruits.  The roots will sucker so if you do not mow around them, they will eventually form a clonal “grove” of plums for you! . North American native plant.

Methley Asian Plum

Full Sun. Full Size on Myrobalan 29-C, space 15′-20′ apart, self-fertile

Most European and Japanese plums are extremely prone to insect and disease problems in the Midwest.  However, many of our customers still ask for them so we have decided to offer a few varieties that supposedly have more resistance to fruit rots.   European plums tend to have a more upright growth habit like pears, while Japanese plums are more spreading like a peach tree.  Grafted onto Myrobalan 29-C which makes a full-sized (15-25’ tall x wide) tree that is very tolerant of wet soils and is resistant to various plum root diseases.   Space 15’-20’ apart.
