AbstractThe negative incidence of some problems affecting the Spanish apricot cultivars has determined the need of a breeding program in order to overcome these difficulties. Until now thousands of seedlings has been evaluated. Cultivars ripening between the end of April to the beginning of July have been released. The new selections have basically integrated the main objectives of the program;program; high eating quality ;quality; sharka resistance, good size and look, etc. A specific line for canning has been developed. Ten new selections are ready to be submitted to the European List of Commercial Varieties. One of them is already on the registration process : 'Rojo Pasion', itsr main characteristics are: precocity (ripening on 15 May) ; red over-colour, big sized fruit, very good eating quality, etc…. At present this cultivar begins to be cultivated.
