Growing and Training

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.
