Top Shelf is a high chill cultivar that has performed excellently in all commercial trials planted throughout Europe, even in high chill regions where winters are not too cold. It has superb fruit quality that is catching the attention of many European marketers. It is a strong plant, easy to prune, and has high yields at a young stage, mainly due to its very large fruit size.
