Q.my younger apricot tree is producing fruit that has no apricot flavor and not sweet
This apricot has been producing some apricots for 3 years. This year there were more than I think it should have produced, but they were pithy and absolutely no apricot flavor. The skin color was beautiful and the fruit meat was lovely apricot orange color. Can you offer any thoughts? Thank you, ann mchazlett

This can be caused by a sulfur deficiency. I would recommend a soil test to see how much needs to be added. Iron sulfate will correct the issue. I would also add dolomitic lime to keep the pH from dropping too much.
