apple cedar rust - which apples to plant - any ??

Natilie70(z8 E Tx)February 20, 2012

Many years back we had some apple trees here - forget what happened to them - probably gophers. I don't remember if we had any apple cedar rust - but we do have those things on the cedar trees that swell up with fingers after a rain (connected ??) Well - I would like to take a stab at planting some dwarf or semi-dwarf fruit trees hopefully that ripen in the fall as we might be gone most of the summer.

Any suggestions for the apple trees ? or should I pass.

Don't want to have to spray the trees every 2 weeks all summer long either. Want more organic easy way of going.

Anyway - thanks for any suggestions/advice.

I did a Google search for "cedar apple rust resistant apple varieties" and this publication from the University of Arkansas was the first one on the list.

Here are some others as well:

Huge Help - Thanks ever so.
Kept us from getting some we thought we wanted - but highly susceptible. Oh well -
Got a Mollie's Delicious - a Arkansas Black and he said we needed a green one to go with them so got a Granny Smith.
Bob Wells nursery in Lindale - trees looked super.
