Manera is a bi-coloured orange/red apricot variety suitable for the cooler climates of northern Europe.
The fruits weigh 50g - 70g in commercial conditions, with 13% sugars.
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.
Let me know when Manera apricot trees are back in stock.
If you do not hear from us by March you can contact us to pre-order for next autumn.
Manera has some resistance to brown rots (Monilia infections) and bacterial canker.
It flowers late in the apricot blossom season, helping to reduce damage from early spring frosts.
Unusually, Manera is not fully self-fertile and requires another apricot tree of a different variety nearby to pollinate it - It's sister variety Mia is the obvious choice.
These trees have not been produced under organic conditions, but are very suitable for planting under an organic regime.
Manera was developed at Agroscope, a plant research station in Switzerland.
