[NAFEX] Low-chill, blight resistant pears?

If possible, I would like to plant a pear tree in my garden. My home is in
San Diego, CA. Fruit trees with < 250 chill hour requirements do well here.
Fire-blight is pervasive -- there are miles of city streets planted with
flowering pear, etc. and all of them are moderately to severely infected. I
have read on nafex about the Southern Queen pear, but cannot locate
information about chill hours, or availability. The "Hood" cultivar is
known for low chill hours, but I have read conflicting reports from
arborists and nurseries about its blight resistance. Some enlightenment
would be appreciated!
