All About Beach Plums. They have a very complex flavor, and some people say they taste like a mix between a strawberry, a plum and an apricot. The skin can sometimes be tart and acidic, but the flesh inside has a deliciously sweet flavor.
How do you prune a beach plum tree?
Late winter or early spring is the best time. The conventional type of pruning is as given to culti- vated plums, first removing dead, diseased, weak wood, and crossing branches. Cut off low branches to keep the fruit off the ground. If the bush is still too thick, branches may be cut out of the top.
