Kaki wilt:
Has anyone noticed that this occurs at the time of fire blight? I ask because the county agent and I noticed this being worse downwind of ornamental pears with fire blight. Plus, the nurseryman saw it starting on his bucket persimmons, (kaki), and sprayed agri-mycin and captan and that stopped it and trees began to recover. Co-incidence? Has anyone ruled out fire blight as a cause?
Some of my 2 year old trees that looked vigorous got it this year. One died and the other one is now putting on new growth after losing about 90% of its foliage and some stem die back. The one hit 2 years ago is still living, just not growing.
