>From personal experience in zone 5 in northern Ohio, I've found no problems
from either CAR or fireblight on the following cultivars in which you are
No Problems in 15 years: Ashmead's Kernal, Tydeman's Late Orange, Summer

fruit in a negative way. By the way, we have had problems with FB and CAR on
other cultivars, so the problems do exist in our area.

Enterprise, etc.) I would like to plant some heirlooms and other special
varieties, but am finding conflicting info on their disease resistance.
I would really appreciate hearing from folks in CAR areas, about what
cultivars work for them. A few I am specifically wondering about are Hidden
Rose or Pink Pearl, Pink Lady, Ashmead Kernal, Tydeman's Late Orange, Summer
Rambo. We live in East Tennessee at about 1400 ft elevation, lots of rain,
hot with long growing season but summer nights are cool. Fireblight is also
