If the gentleness is one of the main criteria we propose Carnica or Buckfast stationmated.

More information to the bee race Buckfast (hybrid species of apis mellifera):
This bee species is a hybrid species, originating from the Western Honeybee (Apis Mellifera), it developped through the long breeding work of the christian monk "Brother Adam". Brother Adam mated different strong and resistant bee species from all over the world with each other around the year 1916 in the monastary "Buckfast" and as the result of his work, he got the hybrid bee species "Buckfast". The Buckfast has a strong popularity among professional beekeepers and starts to gain also a good reputation among hobby beekeepers. The strinking qualities of this bee species are its vitality, its very strong resistance to sicknesses, its gentleness, its unwillingness to swarming combined with a high degree of productivity and a strong breeding performance, which usually leads to a big bee colony.
