Re: seeking answers for sr. project

I can't really provide and info on the questions you asked, but I do remember seeing some figures (on something like planet green or discovery ch) that somewhere around 80% of all apples sold in mathattan were from out of state where as over 50% of the local apple crops in NY were exported. Really m...

Here is a table with a good selection of ciltivars with their cedar rust resistances. Just realise that cultivars which are resistant to red cedar rust may be very suceptable to Quince rust.

Re: Seedling Distress

Just realise, the seeds will grow into the type of apple that pollinated your apple, not the kind of apple the seeds came from!
