Sarah, if you search the web you will find many pictures of the leaf
damage, if it is as obvious as the samples they show in the pictures
it seems pretty easy to detect. It is also good to look at the map of
the world to see where it is present:
I have grown out a few prunus seeds from overseas but only from the
non-red countries. Afghanistan is not red but the government is so
fractured there it may be just a lack of information; Iran next door
is red. Overall I feel its best to be very conservative on this
disease, it has overrun Chile and it could do the same in the US.
