pear death toll

bhawkins(8A Dallas)March 30, 2013

from 27 trees planted 4 years ago, these have died from fireblight

20'th Century unknown rootstock
Chojuro cally
Monterrey pear
Ya Li cally
Seckle cally

Also, Pineapple & Carnes, both on cally, have died from cotton root rot, but I can't blame the tree.

Yep - I have become quite a bit more sensitive to disease resistance - especially Fireblight....

Are you finding you are loosing the grafted tops - or are you loosing the rootstock?

I haven't noticed the rootstock being affected
