I think there must be. The serviceberries outside my office had a lot
of CAR last year, but the wild one in my back yard didn't have any
that I saw, although several of the apples get it, so I know it's
around. If you are asking if there are any selected varieties on the
market, the answer is "I don't know". I don't think there's been a
ton of breeding work on this fruit, so perhaps not.
