The Q&A Archives: Japanese Plum Tree Varieties

Question: I live in the Pacific Northwest in a relatively dry sunny climate (zone 6). I want to plant a couple of Japanese Plum trees, but I don't know which are considered the best, and would do well here. Any suggestions?

Answer: Some of the most attractive Asian plums are also those which do well in your gardening region. 'Beauty' provides the richest flavored fruit,'Methley' produces a heavy crops of medium sized reddish purple plums, 'Shiro' bears sunshine yellow fruit that's very sweet, and 'Early Golden' has golden fruit with a red blush. All of these trees are self-friutful, and all will perform well in your zone 6 garden.
