Deb, I encourage you to try Harvest Queen or Harrow Delight, which are
both from the Harrow, Ontario, breeding program and are very fireblight
resistant.   -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn. (USDA Zone 4b)

Subject: [NAFEX] Pear tree question



We've been trying to grow pear trees for 4 years.  So far we've lost
three (Warren, Seckel, and one other variety I can't remember) to
fireblight.  We have one tree left, a Comice that is hanging in there.

Before I give up on pears for good, I was wondering if anyone has had
experience with the following varieties 

Manning-Miller

Novi

Ure

All are available from St. Lawrence Nursery.  I'm interested in learning
if any are resistant or immune to fireblight and how well they fruit and
the eating quality of each variety.

Thank you.
