Methley Plums. 6.28.16
Methley Plum. 6.28.16
I thought this year there would be no plums. There are not massive numbers, but there are enough for some bursts of orchard flavor. This is Methley. I think it's 1/2 Prunus cerasifera, so similar to Hollywood. The same tree has a graft of Shiro, starting to color up, and a graft of Hollywood, no plums on that this year.
