French term or phrase: L'abricot Canino ou Bulida "prunus armeniaca L"
...Récolté fin Juin (maturité hative) au Maroc à pleine maturité, sa légère acidité..."

Later in the text I have to translate variety names such as Alberge de Montagné, Ampuis, Modesto - I am in two minds whether to leave the original names (would that be acceptable?) or to find English equivalents.

Very specialised area, so there's not much info on the internet.

Thanks!

English translation:the "canino" and "búlida" cultivars of apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.)
Explanation:
Usually, the name of cultivars are indicated in the original language (e.g. the hundreds of cultivars of roses). Canino and Búlida are spanish cultivars of apricot.
"Prunus americana" is the scientific name of apricot tree and the "L." means Linnaeus, from Carl Linnaeus (or Carolus Linnaeus), the first naturalist to name this species.

Thanks, Urico. I did stick with variety (as opposed to cultivar) though. I don't know what I was thinking - of course the names of varieties are not translated!
