I have created a menu structure to show my products like this:

TOP LEVEL CATEGORY
  -> PRODUCT CATEGORY A
    -> SUBCATEGORY A
    -> SUBCATEGORY B
  -> PRODUCT CATEGORY B

...and so on.
I know that I can change the meta-title and meta-description of each category from Virtuemart, but I cannot see how to change them for the top level category, since it overwrites the Joomla menu Browse Page Title and Meta Description.

These forum posts mention that it is not possible:
Browser Page Title for Top Level Category
VirtueMart Categories Layout: Empty Title tag

I know that this is not really a discovery, but since I couldn't find much information online, I thought I could share the thought, to save someone a couple of minutes.

The only way to currently change this (Virtuemart version 3.0.14, Joomla 3.5.1),
is to create your own top level category. If you had this category structure:

DEFAULT TOP LEVEL CATEGORY
  -> APPLES
  -> BANANAS

You should simply do this:

DEFAULT TOP LEVEL CATEGORY
  -> FRUITS
    -> APPLES
    -> BANANAS

And build your menu structure around the Fruits category, instead of using the top level category.
