Growing and Training

Mia has some resistance to bacterial canker. Its skin resists insect attacks and fruit splitting and cracking.

It flowers late in the apricot blossom season, helping to reduce damage from early spring frosts.

Unusually amongst apricots, Mia is not fully self-fertile and requires another apricot tree of a different variety nearby to pollinate it - it's sister variety Manera is the obvious choice.

These trees have not been produced under organic conditions, but are very suitable for planting under an organic regime.


Mia was developed at Agroscope, a plant research station in Switzerland. It's parents are Flame Royal and Luizet.
