My first harvest of Gulf Gold Plums but unfortunately they are tastless. I thought they were supposed to have good flavour.

Hi Anna

Next fruiting season you can try applying 6 handfuls of sulphate of potash around the tree and water it in with 2 tsp of Epsom salt dissolved in 10 liters of water to sweeten the fruits.

Too much water and fertilization can also dilute the sugar content of the fruit. Just be mindful of that.

Give it another season. If the taste doesn't improve you can make the fruits into desserts and you can graft a better variety into the tree rather than uprooting it.
Happy gardening 😎
