Possibility of combining low levels of fire blight resistance in pear


, : Possibility of combining low levels of fire blight resistance in pear. Acta Horticulturae (69): 97-101

In this paper presented at the Second International Symposium on Pear Growing, held in Florence, Italy, 5-6 October 1976, it is noted that hybrid combinations of the varieties Bartlett (= Williams Bon Chretien), Seckel, Comice and Re Carlo di Wurtemberg (King Charles of Wurttemberg) provide additive sources of resistance to Erwinia amylovora. Such sources have led to the development of highly resistant varieties, including Magness, Moonglow and Dawn.

A set of progenies was tested for fire blight resistance by needle inoculation at 3 mo of age in the greenhouse and then 5 yr later in the orchard to determine if the measurements of fire blight resistance made in the greenhouse was correlated wit...
