Cool. Kind of. I guess it just means keep grafting till you find one

any of these survive, I'll let the list know in a couple of months.

susceptible in NY, but not in MN). This is at least true for sweet
cherry (of which I am most familiar). Not so much for the varieties that
are considered highly susceptible, but for those intermediately
susceptible varieties. Basically, I am just trying to warn you that
susceptibility ratings in one part of the world may not be applicable in
