Fire Blight on Pear Trees

Fire blight on pear trees can be quite a problem in certain areas of the country and we are pleased to offer fire blight resistant varieties in our bare root pear trees available online.  Of the European pears, Fan-Stil, Harrow Delight, Warren, Moonglow, Hood, Monterrey, Kieffer, Orient, Seckel, Potomac and Blake's Pride are all resistant to this bacterial disease.  Shinko and Kikusui are the Asian pears that are resistant.  Also available is our 4-N-1 Disease Resistant Pear, which eliminates both disease and pollination concerns.
