Anton, I have a Pineapple and a Smyrna. I used to have an Aromatnaya
but it died of fireblight several years ago. This year I only got a
couple fruits because the fireblight infected nearly all the fruits at
the 1-2" size and they mummified. On the original topic of Medlars I
also lost a Breda Giant to fireblight; my remaining Royal medlar has
blight problems as well.
For some reason I never get fireblight on my pears, the crop you hear
most about FB on; I have around 50 varieties many of which are
considered highly susceptible. The apples get it badly, but not as
bad as quince and medlar which are the worst by far.

> Zone 8, North Carolina Piedmont
