Tipala

‚Tipala‘ with its golden-yellow, pink tinged fruits on its sun-exposed side is a very attractive early variety that enriches the house garden since these fruits are hardly to be found on the market. It is at the end of July that this golden plum ripens with a very sweet aroma and is especially delicious when picked and eaten directly from the tree. It is very suitable for direct marketing as well as for the house garden.

The variety has a high field tolerance against sharka (plum pox virus) and is therefore well suited for the home garden; with regard to the storage of the fruits attention must be paid to the fact that bruises on yellow plums are typically more visible than on blue fruits
