Toptaste Kulinaria® plum trees

Prunus domestica
  • Picking season: Mid
  • Self-fertility: Partially self-fertile
  • Flowering group: 3

Toptaste Kulinaria is a new blue-skinned dessert plum with sweet yellow flesh.

It was developed with disease-resistance in mind and has some resistance to plum pox / sharka virus.

Although primarily a variety for eating fresh off the tree, the plums are very useful in the kitchen - pick them slightly under-ripe for best results.

How to grow

Toptaste Kulinaria ripens in mid-August.  It is partially self-fertile so does not need another pollinator, but cropping will be improved if there are other plum trees nearby.

Advice on fruit tree pollination.


Toptaste Kulinaria won a silver award at the UK Horticultural Trades Association National Plant Show in 2016.
