Late blooming or fireblight susceptible apple cultivars
I am trying to find out information about late blooming or fireblight susceptible Apple cultivars. I am grafting many different heirloom and modern apple cultivars onto g11 rootstock.
I also am looking for bloom period charts for the various apple cultivars. I want to organize my plantings by bloom so I can reduce potential fireblight infections
I live in Myersville MD.
Frederick County Maryland
Here is a very thorough Apple Pollination Chart:
Here is our short list of recommended apple varieties, noting disease resistance: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/apples-selection-and-planting
Here is one list of fire blight resistant apples: https://apples.extension.org/table-of-apple-cultivar-fire-blight-susceptibility/
There are many others. You may want to look on the national extension website:
extension.org where there is much more information.
